Judiciary, IEBC not doing enough to safeguard integrity

23 March 2015, 11:37 Steve Owino

Nairobi - The Commission on Administrative Justice (Office of the Ombudsman) Chair, Otiende Amollo has called upon the Judiciary to fast-track cases that touch on integrity among public servants.

Speaking on Monday during a TV breakfast show, Amollo also emphasised on the need for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to properly determine individuals’ eligibility to vie for public offices.

“The Judiciary tends to avoid making determinations on integrity cases,” Amollo observed.

He echoed the sorry state of affairs with the corruption allegations that have marred parliamentary committees and other public institutions.

To prevent this, the Ombudsman noted that the political plays that rock parliament should be curbed by changing the standing orders and reducing the number of committees, noting that his office has identified and recommended prosecution of some corrupt individuals.

“We have suggested to the DPP that he gazettes three of our lawyers as prosecutors at his office,” Amollo said.

This, he said would help with follow up on the prosecutions for example on the case involving some members of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) who allegedly received houses from National Social Security Fund (NSSF) to impede investigations.
