22 December 2011, 13:39
Nairobi - The three nominees proposed to the Ethics and
Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) will now be subjected to a new vote in
House Speaker Kenneth Marende made the ruling on Wednesday evening
after MPs raised concerns over a vote cast by Deputy Speaker Farah
Maalim on the fate of the three before resolving a tie on the vote.
He however noted that the outcome of the overall vote cast by the
legislators simply rejected the report by the Justice and Legal Affairs
Committee, seeking to shoot down the three names, but had no bearing
whatsoever on their fate.
