MPs kick out EACC boss Waqo from office

09 July 2015, 18:58 William Korir

Nairobi - MPs have voted to kick Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC CEO Walakhe Waqo and his assistant Michael Mubea out of office and have declared their offices vacant.

The MPs voted 70-39 to send the two home and will now declare the two offices vacant.

The MPs in voting out the duo stated that they had no belief in the EACC to continue with its mandate and would like a fresh start for the anti graft body.

The move leaves the EACC without any high level heads.

MPs also earlier voted to have Commision chairman Mumo Matemu and his deputy Irene Keino impeached after the two were linked to graft allegations at the body.

The two later on quit their respective offices instead of facing a tribunal.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has already put in motion steps to have the EACC chair and his deputy as well as other commissioners replaced by forming a team to source out new heads.

The EACC is currently investigating a number of high profile graft cases which will likely be affected by the exits.

" The exits will mean the death of the EACC in the interim," anti corruption lawyer James Muchiri believes.
