, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 24 – The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission will on Monday submit files on suspended Cabinet Secretaries Michael Kamau, Charity Ngilu, Felix Koskei and Kazungu Kambi to Director of Public Prosecutions for directions.
Speaking during news conference at Integrity Centre, EACC Secretary Halakhe Waqo said investigation into allegations involving suspended Energy CS Davis Chirchir and Permanent Secretaries are still on-going.
“I can assure you that there is no particular file, where we deal with process or accusations that are put in place and are unfairly thrown out for the sake of hurrying to quench the thirst of the expectant public. We must deal with each and every case that has been brought to us with fairness and with the justice that each deserves. I would appeal that you give it time, wait for the outcome and see what the DPP declares,” Waqo said on Sunday.
The EACC boss said he will also be submitting files on a Senator and a Member of the National Assembly.
The Principal Secretaries who are still under probe include Defence’s Mutea Iringo, Transport’s Nduva Muli, Mining’s Patrick Omutia, Water’s James Teko, Chief of Staff in the Office of the Deputy President Marianne Kittany and Investment Secretary Treasury Esther Koimett.
Kamau who was in-charge of the transport docket is facing allegations that Kundan Singh Construction Company Limited, Resident Engineer and other Public Servants involved in the ongoing construction of Kamukuywa-Kaptama-Kapsokwony-Kimili Road colluded by trashing aside a consultants design without following the proper procedures and redesigning the road leading to massive embezzlement of funds.
Ngilu (Lands) is being investigated on allegations that she conspired with Evans Waitiki and Valuers from her Ministry to defraud the government of Sh110m by overstating the value of a parcel of land in Mombasa earmarked for purchase by the government.
Kambi (Labour) inquiry is on the allegation of the irregular appointment of Andrew Gichamba Muigai and Veska Jepkemboi Kangongo as members of the NSSF Board.
