Anti-Corruption Commission Officials Resign After Reform

Patrick Lumumba (pictured here), head of the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission (KACC), and his deputies have resigned from their positions, according to a statement by the agency’s advisory board. The resignation comes as a result of a law passed by Parliament last week, which transformed the KACC into a new ethics body.

The government has already started consultations to form a panel responsible for composing the staff of the new Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC). This new body will be in charge of overseeing anti-corruption measures and enforcing ethical standards that integrate the country’s new Constitution.
