(+) EACC FAIL TO APPROVE CHARGES AGAINST AUDITOR
A plot to remove Auditor General Edward Ouko hit a snag after two Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commissioners refused to approve charges against him. EACC detectives have reportedly been investigating a procurement issue in Ouko’s office since 2014 and decided last week to prefer charges against Ouko. The decision was made after President Uhuru Kenyatta laughed off a plan by Ouko to go to New York to investigate how and where the Eurobond cash was banked. The President spoke on live TV during the State House Governance and Accountability Summit.
