Graft report puts Mumo Matemu on the spot

on Friday, 27 March 2015.

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) chairman Mumo Matemu seems to be walking a tightrope following revelations that he was kept in the dark regarding a confidential dossier on corruption that President Uhuru Kenyatta used to order several government officials to step aside.

Sources close to the EACC boss confided in the Saturday Nation that Mr Matemu only learnt of the report when the President alluded to it during his State of the Nation address to MPs and senators Thursday.

Separately, Attorney-General Githu Muigai revealed that a high-level meeting of key stakeholders would convene urgently to assess the anti-graft body’s ability to fight corruption.

Prof Muigai on Friday said there was a need to look at EACC’s constitution afresh to ascertain whether it had the capacity to decisively deal with runaway corruption in the country.

Commotion was witnessed in Kitale town earlier on friday  when officers from the county government blocked the main highway in order to stop Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) from plighting in the route.

The main aim was to prohibit the Public Service Vehicles from entering the town due to the relocation of the main stage from wherever it was to the new location now opposite Kitale Museum. The exercise comes a day after all vehicles using the commonly know Western and Lodwar stage were ejected from the stage to give room for expansion of the town.
Meanwhile, business people and local traders using informal structures alias ‘vibandas’ demonstrated at the county government premises to stop the demolition of those structures. Trans-Nzoia county communication director intervened and calmed down the traders. The exercise is on and according to the minister in charge of planning in the county, they are trying to plan the town and create space for town expansion. She also urged everyone to be cooperative during the exercise since there is need for planning
