Nairobi - There has been no evidence found to charge Treasury officials over Eurobond malpractices, the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC has said.
In a report sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Friday, the EACC said that after thorough investigations, there was not enough evidence to charge Treasury officials over misuse of the KES 400 billion bond.
The EACC stated that despite there being much noise made by activists and members of the opposition, there was no evidence of malpractice.

" The EACC has found no evidence of criminal culpability on the part of government officials and has recommended that the case file be closed," DPP Keriako Tobiko said in a statement.
The recommendation will be a huge sigh of relief to the government after reports and accusations by opposition leader Raila Odinga that KES 110 billion was missing.
Treasury chief Henry Rotich had denied any wrongdoing and asked Odinga to apologize over the comments.
