Waqo stripped of agency post

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

EACC chief Halakhe Waqo has been stripped of the chair­man­ship of the Multi –Agency Task force days af­ter Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta pub­licly re­buked him of mis­lead­ing him. His po­si­tion has been handed over to At­tor­ney Gen­eral Githu Muigai who will now over­see the op­er­a­tions of the task­force charged with deal­ing with among other is­sues, graft cases and all ma­jor in­ves­ti­ga­tions in the coun­try. The Multi-Agency Task­force, pop­u­larly known as MAT was formed by Uhuru as a tool to bring un­der one roof all agen­cies re­lated to in­ves­ti­ga­tions, and to bring col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­ity among the se­cu­rity agen­cies when deal­ing with ma­jor cases.
