“Chairman of EACC Mumo Matemu, CEO Halakhe Waqo and his deputy Michael Mubea should be suspended. Kenyans have lost trust in them,” said Serut, who noted that the three have concentrated in fighting among themselves than spearheading the war against graft.
“I am asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a commission of inquiry to investigate the top three EACC officials,” said the legislator, during the funeral of Abraham Bossis Chuma Cheebet.
Serut noted that the National Assembly has allocated a lot of money to the institution, and insisted that members of the public must get value for their money.
