NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 13 – Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) Deputy CEO Michael Mubea is among 14 applicants who have been shortlisted to replace outgoing Chief Executive Officer Halakhe Waqo, whose term comes to an end in less than three months.
A notice issued by EACC Chairman (Rtd) Archbishop Eliud Wabukala says interviews for the applicants will be conducted by the Public Service Commission from November 27 to November 29.
Other notable names include former National Police Service Commissioner Murshid Mohammed and Reuben Kipkemoi Chirchir who was one of the joint secretaries to the tribunal that probed Supreme Court Justice Philip Tunoi.
According to the interview timetable, Humphrey Okuku Nakitari, Murshid Mohammed, Lucy Wanja Kinuthia, Joel Lusweti Mabonga, Twalib Abdallah Mbarak will kick-off the interviews on November 27.
