IS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL LETTING KACC DOWN?

logoThe Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission’s mission is to combat corruption and economic crime through law enforcement ,prevention and public education which has encountered harsh criticism from some of the big fishes “busted” . The commission has helped in recovering trillions of money lost through corruption one being the Grand regency saga and the latest being the arrest of David Oketch a former KEMRI director to face charges of abuse of office. KACC has in recent times investigated many corruption cases but lacks the power to prosecute any of the criminals.As Attorney General is the ultimate authority under the Constitution on all matters related to criminal prosecutions and directing the Commissioner of Police to carry out criminal investigations. Under the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act 2003, is the prosecutor of all Economic Crimes and Anti-Corruption Cases.But the question still remains how efficient is he in dealing with all the many cases reported to him daily having in mind that more than 243 cases awaits him in court.Do you think that the KACC should maybe be given some powers to prosecute some of the cases in order to reduce the number of cases awaiting A.G’s prosecution?

    I think the anti corruption commision should be very independent. Kacc should be having its own independent judges and magistrates. Wako should not be allowed to intervene with any ruling made by this judges. Anyway with its current situation, i dont think it will deliver much to Kenyans.
