Mwakwere has the last laugh

18 May 2015, 17:12 William Korir

Nairobi - Kenya’s Ambassador to Tanzania Chirau Ali Mwakwere can breathe easy after the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko found that there is insufficient evidence against him to sustain prosecution over corruption allegations.

Mwakwere was among 175 public officials whose positions were under threat following a report by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission EACC which accused him of corruption.

He has been under investigation by the EACC on suspicion of involvement in the irregular acquisition of Kenya Railways Corporation houses when he was Transport Minister.

Tobiko though last week stated that there was not much evidence to show that he has done any wrong and Mwakwere was very happy with the conclusion.

" I said I was clean and I am glad that the DPP has confirmed that I am not corrupt and have done nothing wrong, he told News24.

" It has been traumatizing but it is now over and I look forward to serving the country now with my name cleared," he added.

Mwakwere had earlier accused the EACC of having no evidence to back their case against him and declared it a witch-hunt.

" I have never ever committed such crimes… I have never sold or rented a Kenya Railway house; if anything they should be grateful that I took care of the asset as the Minister for Transport," he told reporters after visiting the EACC.
