Make public corrupt MPs, Civil Society tell Anti-Corruption Commission

 

The civil society has demanded that Members of Parliament who have adversely mentioned in various corrupt deals be made public by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

Under the banner, National Civil Society Congress, the lobby group has threatened to sue the Anti-Corruption body if they fail to make the list public.

They said they will move to court to compel the anti-graft body reveal individuals named in the fictitious travel and sitting allowances in Parliament.

“We want the EACC to release names of individuals involved in the parliamentary financial scam with immediate effect,” a statement read in part.

The lobby group also wants action taken against former sitting MPs.

They said that they want also to petition the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko and National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi to take action against liable MPs, including surcharging them.

“This Sunday, the NCSC will officially launch the petition. We expect that the undersigned and the Rev. Timothy Njoya will officiate the function,” the statement further stated.

Last December, EACC upon invitation of Speaker Muturi to audit systems and suggest improvements raised questions on the authenticity of the payroll of the Parliamentary Service Commission.

In its findings, the anti-graft body revealed the names of some former MPs are still earning salaries.

For instance, an MP claimed mileage allowance for visiting his constituency, when he had travelled to Australia on parliamentary expense for six days.

The rot in the August house revealed that payroll was not authorised by the accountant and the Clerk who is the accounting office, after it is prepared by the Human Resource department creating grounds for ghost workers to be paid.
