Forced to step aside

Should the duo be charged, they will be forced to step aside until they clear their names – reminiscent of the way other CSs were pushed out of the cabinet last year over various cases of corruption after investigations by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

President Kenyatta has already said that the investigators should be left to conclude their investigations.

“We’re waiting for due process to be done. A report has been done and the investigating authorities are doing their work. We will take action when the process is complete,” the President said.

Police already have questioned CS Wario and other senior officials in the ministry over the disappearance of the millions.

Rio report

The report by the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games Probe Committee accuses Kenya’s steering committee for the games of abdicating its work and allowing the plundering of resources and mismanagement by Olympic officials.

Dr Ekai was the chairman of the steering committee, which was expected to meet at least 10 times to prepare Kenya’s participation at the Olympics, but ended up meeting only twice.

The report recommended an audit on how the ministry paid for venue entrance tickets and meals from an imprest budget for members of Parliament and other government officials, yet they had already been paid their allowances by the National Assembly and respective ministries.
