KACC WANTS TO VET PUBLIC OFFICIALS

KBC, 3rd March 2011

The Kenya Anti Corruption Commission (KACC) now wants to be involved in the vetting process of all constitutional office holders.

The anti-graft body Thursday said it will work closely with the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution to ensure that thorough vetting is undertaken before key appointments by the executive.

KACC Advisory Board chairman Okong'o Omogeni is consequently calling for the operationalization of section 35 of the new constitution to allow for full and unlimited access to information held by the state to facilitate in depth vetting of public officers.
He said they had received requests from public institutions to provide information about individuals under consideration for the top jobs.

The board says that the constitution mandates KACC with ensuring state officers including political aspirants are above board. 

"The new Constitution requires holders of public offices to be persons of integrity and honesty willing to serve the Country selflessly. The task assigned to the Commission by the Constitution is that it must handle dutifully and with the highest standards" the KACC chairman said

He added" the Commission wishes to reassert its role as a vetting agency in public appointments and reassure Kenyans that individuals it will clear for public offices will be persons of integrity. 

At the same time, KACC director PLO Lumumba says his commission has completed local investigations into the controversial purchase of the Tokyo embassy land that saw the an estimated Sh9.8 million lost.

Lumumba said his officers had also completed looking into the local aspect of the purchase of the Kenyan embassy in Tokyo and will in the next couple of weeks look at the foreign part.

He further said investigations against heads of various parastatals were going on.
