Team reports directly to the president and will implement the directive that has caused division in Jubilee
According to the Saturday Standard, the Multi-Agency Task Team (MATT) is tasked with carrying out a comprehensive lifestyle audit on all state officers that has caused jitters among some Jubilee Party leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
It has also been mandated to ensure that assets and accounts of those found guilty of corruption are frozen as the state steps up efforts to recover public funds lost to corruption.
Prosecution of suspects implicated in corruption scandals is another task assigned to the team as President Kenyatta seeks to cement his legacy in the wake of runaway corruption in government.
MATT is currently in the process of acquiring polygraph machines to be used in the vetting of State officers in accordance with President Kenyatta’s orders that all State officials be subjected to lie-detector tests.
The team is headed by Attorney General Paul Kihara reports directly to the President who is leading the war against corruption from the front.
Meanwhile, the office of the Director of Public Prosecution has been a beehive of activities with some high profile suspects under investigations and prosecution.
“We have a number of files in different stages. As at now, I have completed those of two more governors. We are also tightening lose ends for the fourth governor’s papers,” DPP Noordin Haji said.
In days to come, the public could witness unprecedented prosecution of high profile suspects including governors, Cabinet Secretaries and heads of state corporations, with President Kenyatta making it clear that no one is untouchable in the war against graft.
