The two will now be required to resign from one of the positions they hold following a memo issued by EACC.

"The Commission advises that any public officer who could be currently holding an office in a political party is in violation of the law and liable to the applicable sanctions, including actions within their respective institutional codes of conduct and ethics," the memo read.

EACC chief executive Twalib Mbarak disclosed that a number of State officials are under investigation for flouting the rule.
