Wabukala bid to be EACC boss will taint his im­age

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

The search for the next chair­per­son of the trou­bled Ethics and Anti-cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion is un­der­way. One of the short­listed can­di­dates is re­tired Angli­can Arch­bishop Eliud Wabukala. I am wor­ried for his rep­u­ta­tion, es­pe­cially when he gets this job.The com­mis­sion has un­der­gone nu­mer­ous chal­lenges with the sub­se­quent bosses be­ing forced out, some­times fol­low­ing ex­cess pres­sure from ex­ter­nal quar­ters. The lat­est ca­su­alty is Philip Kin­isu, who had suc­ceeded Mumo Matemu. Un­for­tu­nately, our lead­ers are not ready to fight cor­rup­tion and that is why any chair­per­son who comes on board with new poli­cies is thrown out as soon as he set­tles in the of­fice. That might not be dif­fer­ent for Wabukala. It is on record that a num­ber of politi­cians, es­pe­cially from Bun­goma have en­dorsed him. This is why I am wor­ried that this might be a scheme to taint his oth­er­wise good im­age, if take up the post.
