This comes after two IEBC returning officers died in line of duty.
IEBC returning officer Daniel Musyoka went missing and was later found dead four days later at Mariko in Loitoktok.
Musyoka was working at the East African School of Aviation tallying Centre when he disappeared.
Gichugu IEBC returning officer Geoffrey Gitobu collapsed and died at the IEBC Nanyuki's office on Monday.
IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati has come out to complain about the harassment of the commission staff.
He said staff who objectively and impartially performed their duties at the national tallying centre are being intimidated and harassed through profiling and arbitrary arrests.
“This has instilled fear within the staff, who are now unable to report to the office for duty. This harassment must stop forthwith," he said.
