Know your new IEBC commissioner Prof Abdi Yakub Guliye – Unknown Details

He was born in 1962 in Wajir County earned his bachelor’s and master degrees from Egerton University specialising in animal production. He holds a PhD in animal nutrition from Rowett research Institute, University of Aberdeen (Scotland, UK).

Prof Guliye applied for the job of commissioner because he believes his experience in managing student elections at Egerton University could be strong enough for use by IEBC.

Egerton University students often threw stones and burnt tyres or smashed motorists whenever they held elections on their campus in Njoro, Nakuru. But in the two years he managed those student elections, the Prof argues, there has been no violence related to polls at the institution.

He, too, supports integration of voters’ registers with registration of persons and wants a special pool of funds allocated to support women candidates.
