We have not cleared Kingi, EACC says

19 May 2015, 09:08 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) has said that it has not cleared Kilifi Governor, Amason Kingi of graft allegations leveled against him.

Kingi, who last week held celebrations throughout the entire Kilifi county saying he had been cleared by the anti-graft agency, will continue being grilled after the anti graft body dismissed his allegations.

Kingi is facing graft allegations after purchasing a house in Kilifi worth millions of shillings.

According to EACC Chief Executive Officer, Halakhe Waqo said that Kingi’s file is among those taken to the DPP for administrative action.

“His file does not say that the Governor and his officers are cleared. It actually demands administrative action to be taken against several specific officers in that County. The DPP has already given his decision and what is remaining is for the County to take administrative action,” noted Waqo.

The anti-graft officer maintained that the file on the Governor’s case 'does not say that he is cleared.'

The CEO instead noted that investigations are still ongoing and further hinted that the file has given various warnings to nearly all officials who work in the County procurement and finance offices and further proposes that administrative action be taken against the said officers.

EACC is accusing Kingi of acquiring the official residence of the Governor at a sum of KES 145 million irregularly and without following Public Procurement and Disposal Act.
