Immigration Director To Appear Before EACC

Immigration Director To Appear Before EACC 
The Director of Immigration Jane Waikenda is set to appear before the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) today, Monday.

Wakienda was picked up by EACC detectives from her Nyayo House office last week for questioning over the issuance of work permits to foreigners.
The Immigration Director then collapsed after the officers appeared at her office which led to her hospitalization at the Nairobi Hospital.
Wakienda, speaking from the hospital last week, said that she would cooperate with the EACC as they carry out their investigations.
The EACC has been investigating various officials at Nyayo House over the irregular issuance of permits to foreigners.
Several officers have been questioned over the matter, with the commission indicating it will prosecute anyone found culpable.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku says his ministry will also conduct investigations into the alleged corruption scandal at the department of immigration.
The Interior Cabinet Secretary says EACC officials are only pursuing allegations of impropriety against Waikenda, who is expected to be grilled at Integrity Centre on Monday.
Ole Lenku added that the government will continue to take stern action against government officers who compromise the country’s security.
