20 suspects investigated on Anglo leasing scandal

22 May 2014, 21:21

Nairobi - The ethic and anticorruption chairman Mumo Matemo has revealed that the commission is now investigation 20 suspects and other vital documents linked to the anglo leasing scandal.

Speaking to the press in Mombasa, Matemo urged Kenyans to be calm as the commission is asking with the office of the director of public prosecution to ensure that those involved are prosecuted.

“We are liaising with the DPP office and we will inform the country on how far we have reached with the ongoing investigations” said Matemo

He said the commission is conducting an independent investigation both locally and at the international level. The anti-corruption chairman also said the commission has distance itself from the ongoing heated debate since it might sabotage their investigation.

“There are a lot of discussions around but we have distanced ourselves from them to give room for a transparent investigation because we fill engaging in them will compromise the inquiry” said Matemo.

However the chairman of Benson OKundi institute of certified public accounts of Kenya said failure to pay the anglo leasing debt would hurt Kenyan economy since many foreign investor opt not to invest in Kenya.

“We have heavily relied on foreign investors failing to pay the debt will make the investor shy to invest in Kenya and that will hurt the Kenyan Economy,” said Okundi

He said Kenya should only at the moment think of paying the anglo leasing debt to be on the safe said with the international community.
