The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission says it has averted the possible loss of public money estimated at 4.2 billion shillings.
According to the Chairman Eliud Wabukala, the commission’s proactive investigations has also led to the recovery of over 352 million shillings over the last one year.
The revelation was made even as it emerged that over 3000 state officers are being investigated over corruption-related cases.
In the face of growing concern over alleged ineptitude in the war against corruption, anti-graft watchdog EACC says it has been effective in discharging its constitutional mandate.
Wabukala insists that the integrity center-based institution has waged a serious war against economic crimes, inhibiting possible loss of billions of taxpayers’ money to corrupt individuals.
Speaking during the commissioning of the National Integrity Academy, the EACC chair said the commission has recorded commendable success in the last 12 months especially in the recovery of public funds and assets.
The commission says it remains at the front line in efforts aimed at ridding the country of corruption.
The agency says it is currently probing a number of high profile individuals who could be culpable of plunder of public resources.
