Narok - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) intends to work with county governments with the view of preventing corruption in the devolved units.
EACC Director Mumo Matemu reaffirmed the commission’s commitment to fight graft at the both levels of government without fear or favor.
Speaking after meeting Narok governor Samuel Kuntai ole Tunai, Matemu also disclosed that investigations have been launched into allegations of misappropriation of funds by some counties.
He said devolved units should not be a reason for corruption and called for cooperation from all stakeholders in fighting the vice.
Governor Tunai on his part pledged to cooperate with the commission in order to stem graft in the county.
Narok was placed the seventh in the corruption index and Tunai further expressed his government’s readiness to have its workers investigated by the commission.
"As a government we are ready to work with the commission with the view of curbing corruption in our county," said the governor.
