EACC told to vacate Integrity Centre by 30th June

22 February 2015, 07:25

Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) chairman Mumo Matemu has said that they have been given a notice to vacate the Integrity Centre, after the expiry of the current lease.

According to Matemu, the owners of the building, Revack Limited, wrote to him on 18 February, 2015, through their advocate, asking the commission to start renovating the building before moving out when the current lease expires on 30 June, 2015, Daily Nation reported.

The letter said, Revack Limited, a company associated with former Cabinet minister Nicholas Biwott, will not renew the lease and that EACC should pay the costs of renovating the building before moving out.

However, Matemu suspected that the notice was a way of disrupting the commission from investigating prominent people who have been implicated in major corruption scandals in the country.

He said the commission had been exposed to attacks by investigations on the Anglo Leasing, and the 'chicken' scandals, but promised to remain firm until when he will see those who were involved in the scams arrested and prosecuted.
