EACC HANDS OVER RECOVERED LAND BELONGING TO KARATINA POLICE STATION


The EACC Chairperson Archbishop (Rtd) Eliud Wabukala hands over the recovered land documents to Inspector General of National Police Service Mr. Joseph Boinnet as Nyeri Governor Hon. Mutahi Kahiga and EACC Management including Vice Chair Comm. Sophia Lepuchirit, Commissioner Mwaniki Gachoka and Deputy CEO Mr. Michael Mubea look on.

The Commission in an event held at the Karatina Police Station in Nyeri handed over property that was irregularly acquired by individuals from the Government. The event was critical as it is a culmination of the efforts made by the Commission in the fight against corruption.

The property which was in form of two parcels of land which were recovered by EACC were handed over to The Inspector General of The National Police Service, Mr. Joseph Boinnet. The parcels of land are Karatina Township/ Block II/379 and Karatina Township/ Block II/381.This land had been reserved for Police Housing as per the Karatina Approved Development Plan No. 31 of 13th February, 1973. Karatina Township/ Block II/379 measures approximately 0.0183 hectare and is valued at Kshs.1.5 million while Karatina Township/ Block II/381 measures approximately 0.0286 hectares and is valued at Kshs.2 million.

Apart from the land that has been recovered, there are ten other adjacent parcels of land that are in the process of recovery in the Environment and Land Court at Nyeri. These are still public parcels of land reserved for Police Housing. The total acreage of the public land is 0.9 acres whose estimated value is over Kshs. 20 million. These 12 parcels of land border the Karatina Police Station and were hived off leaving the Police Station with no compound even for conducting parades or parking. This is the height of impunity where individual persons steal from the police!

The EACC Chairperson, Archbishop (Rtd) Eliud Wabukala handed over the recovered land to Inspector General Mr. Joseph Boinnet and in his speech told the public that EACC has an elaborate system for encouraging the giving of information on the whereabouts of corruptly acquired assets, including the identity of culpable persons, firms and companies involved. He encouraged members of the public to report to EACC any public officer suspected to be engaging or to have engaged in corruption, any bribe demands made by public officers and any public property that may have been illegally acquired or converted to private use and EACC will take appropriate action.

The occasion was also graced by The Governor, Nyeri County, Hon. Mutahi Kahiga, Deputy Governor Caroline Karugu, EACC Vice Chairperson Sophia Lepuchirit, EACC Commissioner Mwaniki Gachoka, Deputy Secretary/CEO Michael Mubea amongst other dignitaries.
