Commissioners of the anti-graft agency must hold their tongues over the ongoing investigations on their chairperson Phillip Kinisu.
The court said that no one from the ethics team should make any statements concerning that inquiry.
This is after activist Okiya Omtatah moved to court demanding that Deputy CEO Michael Mubea be compelled to make full disclosure regarding Sh50.4 million allegedly paid on April 14 2015 through the firm of Michael Daud and MS Ogola and Company Advocates.
“I suspect that the said money is part of 791 million shillings which was stolen from National Youth Service and which EACC was investigating with the Deputy CEO Michael Mubea,”Omutatah argues.
Mr Omtata says that following the clandestine and unexplained release of confidential documents plucked from the personal file of EACC chairperson Phillip Kinusu by Kiptoo John and Joseph Njuguna masquerading as the Bunge la Mwananchi, hype has resulted seeking the irregular and political removal of KINUSU from the office of EACC.
He further claims that the pattern has been used for over years to harass and hound the EACC chairman and its commissioners out of office whenever they stand up to corruption cartels in and outside the government.
Kinisu was on Monday summoned to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation, Kiambu for grilling and to record statements on how his family company Esaki Limited won government tenders worth millions of shillings.
The matter will be heard on August 9.
