Nairobi - Some former MPs are still on payroll while others are receiving pay they do not deserve, an Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC report says.
The report says that there is some KES 21 million missing from the Parliamentary Service Commision PSC coffers and that it has all to do with the malpractices.
CEO Walakhe Waqo said Friday that the revelations are due to the various loopholes that exist in the PSC system that need to be combed out.
" Some have been signing up for allowances for absent colleagues, he also reported, saying loopholes in the PSC have to do with system weaknesses," he said.
The EACC also found that members of the Parliamentary Service Commission have been fuelling their cars using taxpayers money.
"They ask for money claiming they travelled over the weekend yet they did not. We have launched a probe into the graft in Parliament and will name all individuals involved. We will not spare anybody engaged in this practice," he added.
He spoke in Nairobi on Friday when he presented the Parliamentary Service Commission corruption audit to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
