EACC commissioners bribed to quit office

01 April 2015, 15:13 William Korir

Nairobi - Commissioners in the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC have been bribed and threatened to leave their positions, they have said, following the release of the list on corruption.

The Commissioners, led chairman Mumo Matemu and Irene Keino say that they will not resign from office and will not be afraid to continue the fight on corruption.

Keino especially revealed that she had been called at 11.30 PM at night and offered an ambassadorial position to quit the EACC.

" We have heard all manners of things in the last few hours but we will not resign or quit and will continue to fight corruption hard," they said Wednesday.

They also said that they will review the list on corruption and if possible add a few more names that they deem to be missing after Kenyans complained.

" Kenyans have complained that there are some names missing. We will look into that and ensure that we have them put on the list as soon as possible," Matemu added.

Keino was insistent that despite efforts to have her step aside from office, she will remain committed to the war on corruption.

" It is not something to negotiate. The president has already called on us to ensure that we deal with corruption and he has offered us as much support as possible".

" We are just getting started," she added.

Over 150 public officials have been implicated in graft in various sectors of the public service including Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, Senators and MPs.

Thus far, 22 officers in national government have stepped aside to allow investigations take place.
