Retired ACK Bishop Eliud Wabukala Named EACC Chairman
President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated retired Anglican Bishop Eliud Wabukhala as the EACC Chairman.
The National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi made the announcement during the special sitting that was called to discuss election laws on Tuesday.
The Public Service Commission had shortlisted six candidates for the position of chairperson at the EACC.
Others are William Kirwa, Philemon Mwaisaka, Peter Ondieki, Rose Osoro and Erastus Iguna.
They were interviewed on November 17 at PSC offices in Nairobi.
The position of EACC chairman became vacant following the resignation of Philip Kinisu on August 31 after he was implicated in the Sh791 million NYS scandal.
A company associated with Kinisu is said to have received Sh35 million.
