EACC PARTNERS WITH FAITH BASED ORGANISATIONS TO BATTLE GRAFT

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has enlisted religious organisations as key partners in the fight against corruption. A Joint Partnership Action Plan for this purpose was launched on Wednesday, May 17

Under the plan, the partners will initiate programmes targeting the youth in line with the Commissions push for the establishment of Integrity Clubs in institutions of learning.

The launch, at a Nairobi hotel, was attended by members of the Commission and religious organisations, representatives of the diplomatic community, civil society and the media.

The Chief Guest at the launch, Dr. Manu Chandaria, a businessman and philanthropist, praised the faith-based organisations for taking up the invitation to partner with the Commission and urged other institutions to follow suit since the fight against corruption was a collective responsibility.

He lauded the Commission for its efforts against graft, which had resulted in the recovery of stolen public assets; the preservation of assets worth Kshs. 335 million; the forwarding of 432 cases to court; the disruption of loss of public funds worth Kshs. 1.6 billion and the charging in court of 1,340 officials with various corruption offences since January 2017.

The chairman disclosed that the Commission had received 16,140 self-declaration forms from political aspirants vying for different seats in the August 2017 General Election. He affirmed the Commission’s support in vetting political aspirants with other relevant state organs involved in the process in order for the country to realize transparent and accountable leadership.

Speaking at the same event, the Chairman of Kenya Editors Guild, Mr. Linus Kaikai, urged the Commission to intensify the war against corruption and pledged the support of the media.
