The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has cleared former Communications Authority Director General Ezra Chiloba of irregularity allegations at the authority.

According to the commission, investigations established that there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations made against Chiloba and other authority officials.

On September 26, 2023, the Commission received allegations of irregularities in the management of the staff mortgage scheme at the Communications Authority of Kenya.

A report investigating the audit of the CA Staff Mortgage Scheme carried out under a directive of the board on May 3, 2023, recommended an investigation on Chiloba to answer the same.

CA then suspended Chiloba from the Director General position and replaced him with Christopher Wambua in an acting capacity.

The committee also suspended four other officials for allegedly mismanaging the staff mortgage scheme where the government lost millions of shillings.

Chiloba has been nominated as Kenya’s Consul General to Los Angeles, USA.
