Uhuru refuses to send EACC bosses home
05 August 2015, 16:38
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has declined to assent to the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission EACC Amendment Bill 2015 that sought to send home the EACC CEO and his deputy.
The bill was voted through by MPs last month in a move which essentially sent home EACC CEO Walakhe Waqo and his deputy Michael Mubea.
Ukambani MPs voted for the move equivocally in revenge for the dismissal of Monica Juma as a nominee to the position of Secretary to the Cabinet and the woes facing Lands CS Charity Ngilu.
Ruhr though, Wednesday refused to ascend to the bill which would have in effect left the EACC toothless in its fight against corruption in the country.
The bill will thus be returned to parliament for re-consideration.
Currently, the EACC has no commissioners after they were all kicked out by MPs and rubber-stamped by President Kenyatta.
