Nairobi, Kenya: The anti-graft body has run into fresh trouble pitting chairman Matemu, the CEO Halakhe Waqo and his deputy Michael Mubea.
The Standard Digital has seen exchange of letters between Matemu and Waqo pointing towards ‘illegal action’ taken against Mubea.
In the letter, Waqo alleged that neither his office nor that of the human resource consulted in Mubea’s suspension.
He directed suspended officer to report on duty and continue with his work.
‘’Mr. Chairman in discharge of this cause of action, you did not consider to consult my office or the Human Resource Management Office. You have not also referred to the ‘Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission Human Resource Manual, August 2013. Section 9.20.5 that stipulate clearly steps to interdicting an officer and benefits of an interdicted officer while under interdiction”, part of the letter read.
He continued: “Given the foregoing and since am in charge of the day to day running of the Commission according to the Act, I find it hard to enforce and therefore do not support your action to interdict Mr. Mubea. By a copy of this letter, I am directing the officer to report on duty and continue with his work.
