Wako, Kacc directed to compile Anglo-leasing probe report

Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee wants the Attorney General and Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission to publish a progress report on their joint investigation of Anglo-Leasing corruption cases in two weeks.

The two offices have been asked to explain their joint inability to conclude and prosecute cases associated with the long running investigations.

On Tuesday the two sides, which have traded blame for the slow progress in the investigation and prosecution, came face to face before the committee for a three-hour grilling.

Under pressure

Acting KACC Director John Mutonyi represented the anti-corruption agency while the Senior Deputy Solicitor-General Muthoni Kimani represented the AG Amos Wako.

According to sources at the closed-door meeting, the AG’s and KACC’s offices were under pressure from dissatisfied committee members.

"We are not happy with the quality of their work," said committee Chairman Abdikadir Muhamed after the meeting at Continental House, Nairobi.

He added: "We are having another meeting with them in two weeks. We want ensure we have a report when Parliament reopens."

A committee member disclosed that Mr Mutonyi was at pains to explain why many investigations had not yielded successful prosecution.

On the other hand, Ms Muthoni reportedly blamed slow progress on lack of assistance from the Swiss government where some of the elusive Anglo-Leasing companies are, allegedly registered and proceeds from contested contracts stored
