- Akombe resigned at the same time.
- In an interview with BBC, she said she had fled in fear for her life, recalling Chris Msando's murder, which happened before the August 2017 elections.
Former IEBC Commissioner Roselyn Akombe has returned to Kenya after being away for almost six years.
Akombe posted photos of herself captioned "No place like home! #Kenya" on Thursday.
She fled the country to New York, United States in 2017, a week before the slated presidential elections re-run, on October 26.
Akombe resigned at the same time.
In an interview with BBC, she said she had fled in fear for her life, recalling Chris Msando's murder, which happened before the August 2017 elections.
"You'll be suicidal to think that nothing will happen to you. I have never felt the kind of fear that I felt in my own country," Akombe said.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was under "siege", she said, adding that it was divided.
Akombe said the commissioners and other IEBC personnel had been receiving death threats.
She said the death threats were anonymous further adding that she had been put under pressure to resign.
She reiterated that she did not "feel safe enough to be able to go home" at the time and subsequently, in the near future.
"I do not feel safe enough to go back home. This is not what I thought," she answered when asked if the IEBC was safe.
Kenyans commented on her return, welcoming her back.
