MP asks Tobiko, EACC to investigate ‘chicken eaters’

16 February 2015, 12:41 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Keriako Tobiko and the anti-graft agency should investigate IEBC officials involved in the chicken scandal, Kieni MP Kanini Kega has said.

Kega said the two offices should speedily investigate the matter given that those who gave the bribes were last week jailed by a UK court.

Nicholas Charles Smith, 43, and Christopher John Smith, 71, were jailed for three years and 18-month suspended term respectively by Southwark Crown Court in UK after they were found guilty of bribery charges.

Speaking in Mweiga stadium, Nyeri during a volleyball sport tournament, Kega however said the accused Kenyans 'should not be held culpable just because their colleagues were convicted’.

“We cannot rely on information from a foreign court which is not within our jurisdiction while we have our own independent investigative agencies. Investigations should be done first and those found culpable be taken to court and charged,” said the MP.

He asked the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to fast track the matter and prefer charges against any individual found liable of receiving bribes.

The MP further urged the government to act on officials of the then Interim Independent Electoral Commission (IIEC) and the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) involved in the scandal.

It is alleged that about 10 officials from the two institutions demanded bribes of KES 50 million from Smith & Ouzman Ltd to influence awarding of printing tenders.
