Philip Kinisu resigns as EACC Chairman
Philip Kinisu has tendered his resignation from the post of EACC Chairman to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In a statement to newsrooms, Kinisu said that the issues bordering on investigations of a firm he is associated with have rendered his stay in office impractical.
He said that he took the decision to ensure that due attention is paid to the fight against corruption and to save the country of resources being spent in deliberations on the matter.
He cited the petition filed in the National Assembly where MPs sought that the President forms a tribunal to consider his removal from office as well as a report by the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee of the National Assembly.
