Nairobi - A civil society group in Nakuru is accusing the Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission EACC of intimidating, harassing and trying to silence corruption whistle blowers in the country.
The Nakuru graft watchdog said that EACC has negated it's responsibility of fighting corruption and has instead resorted to fighting whistle-blowers.
Addressing the press in Nakuru town on Monday the group led by it's chairman Mwangi Muthee said that EACC has become a toothless and barren dog that is a burden to its owner.
Mwangi accused EACC boss Halaqhe Wako of engaging in cheap public relations gimmicks instead of fighting corruption.
"EACC under the leadership of Wako has become an impotent, barren and toothless dog that has forgotten to attack enemies and is now attacking the home owners," said Mwangi.

"They have opted to being used by the government of the day to engaging in cheap PR games aimed at fooling Kenyans," he complained.
He said the manner in which EACC stormed former devolution CS Anne Waiguru's house after she resigned and the recent Eurobond case is a clear indication that EACC has lost direction and the war against is lost.
He said it's wrong for EACC to side with the government saying it has given room for corruption to flourish.
