Two Kenyan ministers should be charged with the abuse of office, the anti-graft watchdog recommended on Monday, amid an anti-corruption drive. wpid-A-comic-cartoon-targets-hidden-rules-and-corruption-in-the-entertainment-industry-300x243.jpg
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) said suspended labor minister should be face a charge over the appointment of two members to the country’s pension fund, the National Social Security Fund board, and the transport and infrastructure cabinet secretary should be charged in relation to the misappropriation of funds in an ongoing road construction project in western Kenya.
The EACC’s CEO Halakhe Waqo on Sunday requested for more time to probe into 68 graft cases involving senior public officers as a 60-day ultimatum issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta to the commission for the investigations came to an end on Monday.
The president earlier said his office had been receiving complaints about breaches of ethical standards and theft of public resources by civil servants, state and public officers.
He has ordered relevant departments to speed up the fight against “rampant internal graft which has increased in the past two years.”
Corruption has been on the spotlight in the East African nation since a private firm’s directors from Britain and the United States earlier this year were found guilty of bribing Kenyan officials to award them tenders for government supplies. Enditem
