, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 8 – Suspended Cabinet Secretary for Labour Kazungu Kambi is on Friday set to be questioned over corruption allegations leveled against him at Integrity Centre.
He has been accused of involvement in corruption deals at the National Social Security Fund (NSSF).
He is among five Cabinet Secretaries mentioned in a confidential dossier that the anti-graft body submitted to President Uhuru Kenyatta who in turn handed it to Parliament for investigations.
Kambi has since claimed that the people behind the allegations of graft against him want him removed because he had sealed graft loopholes at NSSF.
On March 29, he pleaded his innocence and asked the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) to expedite the investigations into graft allegation against him.
“As I step aside, I urge the EACC to comply with the 60-day timeline spelt out to conclusively and comprehensively carry out the investigations as directed by the President. I am innocent and confident that upon completion of the investigation, I will be vindicated,” Kambi said.
Siaya Senator James Orengo and suspended Transport Principal Secretary Nduva Muli are also expected to appear before EACC detectives.
Muli is accused of irregularly facilitating the disposal of Kenya Railways properties in Nairobi and various cities in Kenya and irregular awarding of tender for the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway.
On Monday his boss, the Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau also appeared before the ant-graft body but declined to address journalists after the grilling.
