New EACC bosses sworn in

18 January 2016, 20:53

Nairobi - Newly appointed bosses of the anti graft body the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC have been sworn in.

According to the Daily Nation, the chairman Philip Kinusu and four other Commissioners were sworn in Monday in Nairobi as they aim to fill in positions left vacant by the sacking and resignation of previous bosses.

Commissioners Dabar Maalim Abdi, Paul Mwaniki Gachoka, Sophia Lepuchirit and Rose Mtambo Macharia, were sworn in Monday by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga at the Supreme Court.

Kinusu takes over from Mumo Matemu who quit in May 2025 following a raft of graft allegations.

" This marks the beginning of a re-energised war against corruption. It might take a while because we are new but in the next few days, you will see the new approach we will take in tackling the problem,” Kinusu is quoted as saying.

The EACC has been accused by the opposition as well as civil society of lacking the ability to reign in on corruption cases in the country thanks to having no Commissioners.

The Standard reports that the Commision is faced with the hard task of regaining national confidence after being accused of being a pro-government agency despite its supposed independence from government.

The EACC has been accused of not prosecuting key cases in the fight against graft in the country, with the opposition pointing to the Eurobond saga as one such case.

The EACC has thus far found no government official guilty of any charge in the alleged misuse of the KES 400 billion bond.
