Nairobi, Kenya: Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee has approved Wafula Chebukati as Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair and Eliud Wabukala as Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) boss.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had nominated retired Anglican Church head Eliud Wabukhala to head the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) this is after Mr Kinisu resigned.

 The former EACC boss left office after an Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) report showed that Esaki Limited, a company associated with his family, received Sh246 million from doing business with NYS, an organisation he was investigating.

This step makes Wabukhala the first man of the cloth to head the country's anti-graft agency.

President Uhuru’s pick, Wafula Chebukati will also take over at the IEBC alongside six other commissioners who are replacing Issack Hassan’s team that resigned.
