Nakuru - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is completely dead and will never resurrect, a civil society has claimed.
The Nakuru watchdog group claimed that EACC was killed by Parliament in conjunction with the national government after its chairman and commissioners left office following witch-hunt.
Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru town, the group’s chairman Regina Kitheka said that members of parliament help the government to kill EACC with the aim of saving senior government officials and members of parliament who were implicated with corruption.

“Kenya at the moment does not have a body to fight corruption because EACC is resting in the grave after Parliament and government killed it by forcing the commissioners to resign,” said Kitheka.
“The government wanted to protect its integrity and it could only do so by killing the EACC which was trying to clean the mess in government. Parliament has never wanted EACC from the start and they will never be on the side of EACC,” she added.
Kitheka added that Kenya has now been left at the mercy of a corrupt Parliament and a government full of corrupt officials.
