Muturi asks EACC to investigate CDF expenditure

02 December 2014, 09:22 Samuel Kisika

Mombasa – The National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi, said he has asked the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate how MPs spend the Constituency Development Funds (CDF).

Muturi, who felt embarrassed by the National Assembly’s CDF committee failure to release the investigation report on MPs’ utilization of the funds said the delay undermines the constitutional provision of accountability by every public officer.

The Speaker raised concern that the failure to table the report on the floor of Parliament is a strategy by MPs to protect each other against accountability despite the National Assembly playing a crucial oversight role on other government bodies.

“It is the constitutional requirement for every public servant to be accountable on the expenditure of the taxpayers’ money. We all have a role to play on transparency and accountability on CDF utilization,” said Muturi.

“Let’s be open to ourselves not to thump our chests on roof-tops on holding others accountable because charity begins at home. I have requested EACC to come and investigate the CDF for accountability among the MPs,” he added.

Muturi condemned MPs in various House committees who go on foreign trips to seek for certain deliberations, research or benchmarking while spending huge public funds yet no report pertaining to the trip’s findings is given.

“I would like to raise concern over delayed committee reports. Some countries are tired of trips by Kenyan MPs delegation. When two years down the line a committee is yet to produce the report then the matter is very serious,” said Muturi.

He challenged the media to be vigilant in providing information to the public including information on the accountability of MPs.

Muturi was speaking in Mombasa during a joint forum between the National Assembly and the Kenya Parliamentary Journalists Association deliberating on the need for collaboration in serving people and building mutual relationship.
