Uhuru names team to appoint EACC Commisioners

12 June 2015, 17:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed a nine-member panel to recruit new Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) commissioners.

The panel will be chaired by the Supreme Court Judge Dr. Smokin Wanjala.

Other members of the panel include Ms. Kagwiria Mbogori, who will represent the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights, Mr. Titus Ndambuki (Public Service Commission), Adan Wachu (Inter-Religious Council of Kenya), Winfred Lichuma (National Gender and Equality Commission), Gladys Karegi Kianji (Association of Professional Societies in East Africa), Kennedy Kihara (Office of The President), Maryanne Kimani-Njau (Office of the Attorney General) and Peter Koli (Media Council of Kenya).

The President appointed the panel in accordance with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Act, which provides the procedure to be followed in appointing new commissioners.

The panel sets in motion the recruitment process, which will start with advertising, shortlisting and thereafter conducting interviews before submitting names of successful candidates to the President.

President Kenyatta will subsequently pick three names, which he will then forward to Parliament for vetting.

The EACC Commissioners were hounded out of office after allegations of corruption and abuse of office hit the anti- graft body.

Chairman Mumo Matemu and his Deputy Irene Keino were also forced to leave office.
