The Star (Kenya) - - News -

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.
