EACC Breaks Silence on Letter Revealing Investigations on Ruto Cs and Aides Including Murkomen, Ichung’wah, Duale, Sudi and Farouk over Graft

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has flagged a letter detailing investigations into key figures in Kenya’s Kwanza cabinet.

EACC stated that the letter, sent to the State House, did not come from the commission.

As a result, members of the public were warned to dismiss the letter, which was widely shared on social media on Thursday, March 28.

The fake letter claimed that Defence Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale and his Transport counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen were under investigation for different graft instances.

However, the precise offences that were being examined were not stated. Also listed in the letter were National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah, Kapsabet MP Oscar Sudi and President William Ruto’s close aide Farouk Kibet.

“This letter is fake and not from EACC,” the Commission stated.

The authors of the bogus letter also claimed that investigations into officials had already been concluded.

The papers were also forwarded to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) for further analysis and release.

Notably, one of the inconsistencies found in the viral letter was the date. The bogus letter was dated 2018 and sent to Joseph Kinyua, the Head of Public Service.

The authors of the letter also mentioned previous EACC CEO Halakhe Wago, who was succeeded by Twalib Mbarak in 2019.

The EACC is responsible for investigating corruption cases within the government before submitting a dossier to the Office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (ODPP), which is constitutionally required to prosecute suspects in court.
