EACC launches new plan against graft

18 March 2014, 13:32

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked members of the public to report cases of corruption and violation of codes of conduct to the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC).

“Kenyans can report corruption through the newly launched Huduma centers which are an avenue to eradicate corruption,” said the President during the launch of the EACC strategic plan in Nairobi.

The President said that so far, several cases of corruption had been reported through the Huduma centers and EACC was following ten cases deemed to be serious.

The President affirmed the national government’s infrastructural support for the EACC in its quest to rid the country of corruption.

“My government supports EACC as it establishes itself in the counties. My government will ensure that EACC has the requisite infrastructure, personnel and capacity to fight corruption,” he added.

The launch of the EACC strategic plan by comes after the tender to supply laptops by Olive Communications was revoked.

The standard gauge railway had also been riddled with claims of corruption although though the Parliamentary committee that was investigating it was cleared of irregularities.

The two projects are key to the Jubilee government.

Meanwhile, the President hailed the progress that had been attained in the fight against corruption in the country over the last 15 years saying that abolition of foreign exchange and import certificates which were avenues of corruption were major breakthroughs in the fight.
