Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) commissioners Dr Dabar Abdi Maalim and Rose Mghoi Macharia have resigned.
According to the State House, the two tendered their resignation letter which President Uhuru Kenyatta received and accepted.
“His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has today, 1st September 2021, received and accepted the resignation of Dr Dabar Abdi Maalim and Mrs Rose Mghoi Macharia as Commisioners of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC),” stated State House.
The two assumed office in January 2016, alongside commissioners Paul Mwaniki Gachoka and Sophia Lepuchirit, sworn in by former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.
Maalim and Macharia got the nod in 2015 after they were vetted by Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC).
Their nomination came after the former Chairperson Mumo Matemu and Commissioners Irene Keino and Jane Onsongo resigned six months ago following the formation of a commission of inquiry to investigate allegations of corruption and abuse of office after Parliament approved a petition that sought their removal from office.
