President killing EACC to save corrupt ministers, claims MP

14 April 2015, 09:33 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Nakuru west member of parliament, Samuel Arama has alleged that the government plots to kill the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) in order to save senior government officials and ministers who were forced to step aside after being implicated in corruption.

Speaking at Nakuru town Monday evening, Arama said that the Jubilee government has hatched a plot to force out of office all the EACC commissioners as a way of killing the evidence they gathered implicating ministers and other senior government officials in corrupt dealings.

“What the President did was a mere public relations exercise because on one side, he is purportedly fighting corruption while on the other side, he is killing the same team that is supposed to fight corruption. President Kenyatta is using proxies in his office to kill EACC and we are aware of the plot,” said Arama.

He added, “He wants to save the corrupt ministers because he does not want to hurt URP and the deputy President whose members have been implicated.”

The MP said that should the corrupt ministers get their way back into the cabinet, then the President will have lost the moral authority to fight corruption in the country.

“You cannot purport to be fighting thieves while at the same time you are keeping thieves in your own house. The President must protect his legacy by supporting EACC in its fight against corruption rather than trying to kill it the way he is doing it,” he said.
