“They need to come out clean; who are these individuals in the EACC list that they have information that they should have been and cleared and those who shouldn’t have. They need to put these things on the table because they seem to have more than we have,” added Sang’.

The committee urged the DPP not to be intimidated by any person over the work he was doing saying he should ensure the corruption purge continued.

In the same breath, Nandi legislators called for the reinstatement of Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei who had been cleared by the Ethics and Anti -Corruption Commission and the Office of the Director of public Prosecutions.

“Since he has been cleared he should be given back his job,” said Sang’.

Nandi women representative Zipporah Kering on her part stated that since the 60 day period given to EACC to complete investigations on the 175 individuals had lapsed, it was time those whose cases had been dropped to resume duty.

Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter, who facing charges of intimidation, creating disturbance and incitement following an incident at the Gilgil weighbridge two months ago pointed out that service delivery, in various ministries had dwindled since Cabinet Secretaries appointed to hold brief for their suspended colleagues could not juggle between their own and the assigned ones.

The eight legislators also urged EACC to speed up the remaining cases to enhance faster dispensation of justice.
