US Backs Ongoing Graft Purge
The ongoing fight against corruption was a key focus of discussions when the United States Ambassador to Kenya, Mr. Kyle McCarter, paid a courtesy call on Commission’s Secretary/CEO Mr. Twalib Mbarak, with both men acknowledging that the occasion was an opportunity to deepen their cooperation in tackling the social vice.
Of particular note was the efforts both parties have made in breaking the erstwhile silo mentality among law enforcement and prosecution agencies through strengthening collaboration, cooperation and coordination in the multi-agency approach in the fight against corruption.
They also discussed the need to enhance the Commission’s capacity in key areas such as asset tracing and recovery, financial investigations and intelligence management. This will be done through training, focusing on recovery of illegally acquired public assets, high impact investigations and corruption prevention.
Mr. Mbarak appreciated the ambassador’s personal commitment and that of his government to support the fight against corruption. “As a Commission,” he said, “we endeavour to work closely with all key stakeholders towards an integrity-driven Kenyan Society.”
