The immediate former Christ is the Answer Ministry (CITAM) Church Presiding Bishop David Oginde has been sworn in as the new chairperson of the anti-graft body, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (Eacc).
While taking the Oath of Office yesterday afternoon at the Supreme Court buildings and administered by Chief Justice Martha Koome, Oginde acknowledged that corruption remains one of the major threats in the country and called for heavenly intervention to curb the vice as he takes the mantle at the helm of the anti-graft czar body.
“Let me at the onset acknowledge that corruption is our worst enemy in this country. It is deep rooted, it is widespread, it flies high to the heavens and continues to adversely impact every sector of our public life.” Oginde said in his inaugural acceptance speech.
He further thanked his predecessor, retired Anglican Archbishop Eliud Wabukala who has been at the helm of the commission for six years.
The CJ urged the new anti-corruption boss to serve with zeal and assured him of support from the Judiciary in the country’s quest to uphold the rule of law.
“You have a huge responsibility to lead an institution that is safeguarding public interest and promoting public confidence.” Koome observed.
