EACC chairman Eliud Wabukala has affirmed his commitment in the fight against corruption, saying suspects with sufficient evidence against them won’t be spared. Addressing stakeholders at Eliud Wabukala ACK Malakisi secondary school in Sirisia constituency, the retired Arch-Bishop said he has heard concerns that members of his staff are ambushing suspects in the wee of hours, saying they won’t relent.

He said workers in public offices must maintain transparency and accountability when handling money to avoid any embarrassments as EACC won’t relent when it comes to performing their duties.

Wabukala noted that the trend of politicians dishing out money sets a bad precedence, “In previous years when politicians campaigned they didn’t lure voters suing money but unfortunately, the current script has changed and one has to part with money to get votes. They’ll use the opportunity, once elceted, to get back what they gave out,” he said.

He added that they decided to launch integrity clubs in high schools to nurture values from an early stage and that will be passed down to future generations.

Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati welcomed the move by the commission to set up a regional office in Bungoma town saying it will keep workers on their toes.
