The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Cotu sec­re­tary gen­eral Fran­cis At­woli want the Ethics and Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion dis­banded for in­ter­fer­ing with NSSF hir­ing.

He ac­cused CEO Michael Mubea of in­ter­fer­ing with the on­go­ing re­cruit­ment of the Na­tional So­cial Se­cu­rity Fund chair­man Gideon Ndambuki.

At­woli yes­ter­day said it was un­re­al­is­tic for the EACC to sum­mon Ndambuki barely less than six months af­ter he as­sumed of­fice.

“As a work­ers’ rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the NSSF board, we will move to court to stop EACC from in­ter­fer­ing with the on­go­ing re­cruit­ment,” he said.

The Cotu boss said the pow­ers of ap­point­ing the chief ex­ec­u­tive and man­ag­ing trus­tee do not lie with the EACC, but the NSSF board.

At­woli pointed out that af­ter the board ap­points the CEO, the anti-graft agency can in­ves­ti­gate the ap­pointee based on his or her past record.
