EACC to audit employees lifestyle in war against graft

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) now says it will carry out a lifestyle audit on all its employees to help in the war against corruption.

Speaking on Citizen TV’s Sunday Live Show, EACC chairperson Philip Kinisu  said this will ensure all commissioners and staff members at Integrity Center are not compromised in their anti-graft war.

Kinisu further appealed to other arms of the government and politicians to support the EACC to enable it to deliver on its mandate.

Speaking separately Mukurwe-ini MP Kabando Wa Kabando has challenged the National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and Deputy Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and others mentioned in an affidavit by former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru on the alleged National Youth Service (NYS) theft of Ksh 791 million to clear up their names.

Kabando also told those mentioned in the scam to carry their own crosses.

Similarly, Chief Justice Dr. Willy Mutunga wrote to the anti-graft body to carry out a lifestyle audit on all top Judiciary officials starting with Supreme Court Judges.

Speaking at the Supreme Court after swearing-in of new EACC Chair Philip Kinisu and four other Commissioners barely two weeks ago, Mutunga disclosed that he is ready to submit his wealth declaration to the anti-graft body.

The Chief Justice also promised that the Judiciary would fast-track corruption cases before the courts and warned the new EACC officials to be ready to face hurdles from politicians in the fight against corruption.
