  • President Uhuru Kenyatta has approved the resignation of two commissioners of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

    The Head of State on Wednesday, September 1, received the letters of resignation from Dabar Abdi Maalim and Rose Mghoi Macharia.

    "His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has today, 1st September 2021, received and accepted the resignation of Dr Dabar Abdi Maalim and Mrs Rose Mghoi Macharia as Commissioners of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC)," State House wrote on their social media page.

    Their resignations leave the two positions vacant, with the President expected to announce the existence of the vacancies officially.

    Mghoi and Dabar were first appointed into office in 2015 after the National Assembly Justice and Legal Affairs Committee approved their nomination.

    The duo were among the five names that were presented to Uhuru for approval. Others who were approved during the same period include Paul Mwaniki and Sophia Lepuchirit.

    During the vetting process, the MPs noted that Dabar Maalim was the right man for the job owing to his qualifications.

    "The committee noted that the nominee looked religious and would bring honesty at the commission if appointed," said the report of the commission.

    Rose Mghoi was the only nominee who was questioned over allegations that she was being probed by the World Bank for getting a consultancy job based on false credentials.

    "The committee dismissed the allegations because they were not made on oath and further that the documentation relied on was not credible," Chepkonga said.

    She, however, got the job and after almost six years she has called it quit.

    Philip Kinisu, was chosen with the group as their chairperson.
