Keino quits EACC

30 April 2015, 16:16 William Korir

Nairobi - Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC deputy chair-lady Irene Keino has resigned from office.

Keino resigned Thursday afternoon after a tumultuous three weeks in which she was interdicted by parliament for corruption allegations and then suspended by president Uhuru Kenyatta from office over the same.

She was to appear before a Committee named by the president to probe allegations that she and chairman Mumo Matemu had been involved in illegal activities while in office.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga swore in members of the tribunal that formed to probe the conduct of suspended EACC bosses Thursday.

The four members of the tribunal include Jonathan Bowen Havelock, Margaret Shava, Muathe Issa and Juster Nkoroi.

Keino said that she was not going to agree to defend herself against politically instigated allegations and would rather quit office.

" This has been too much for me on a personal level and my family and friends," she announced.

The EACC is in the midst of investigating some 180 public officials over corruption in the public service, some of whom have been asked by president Kenyatta to step aside from office to leave room for investigations.
