Benji Ndolo: President Ruto should pick Miguna to head EACC
President William Ruto should pick fiery lawyer Miguna Miguna to head an anti-graft body, this is according to political analyst Benji Ndolo.
Speaking in an interview with TV47 on Thursday, October 20, Ndolo said that if President Ruto is really committed to fighting corruption that has plagued the country since independence, then he should install competent and no-nonsense individuals to head anti-corruption agencies.
"President Ruto is really on an aggressive never-before-seen agenda and pace to change the economy of this country and to fix a lot of things that are broken. I would say even that somebody like Miguna, if the president is absolutely committed to fighting graft in a way that has never been seen before, throw Miguna to head something like the [Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission]EACC," Ndolo opined.
According to Ndolo, just the thought of Miguna busting you stealing public money will send shivers down the spine of corrupt individuals.
"Everybody will be scared to have Miguna catch him stealing public money. Miguna will come to your house in Runda with his officers. He's smart, he'll do with the Auditor General and he'll find where money is lost and who's culpable.
Ndolo's opinion, however, does not hold water because the current EACC CEO and Secretary Twalib Mbarak took over in January 2019, and his tenure is six years.
Miguna arrived in the country on Thursday, October 20 morning after exactly 1,716 days in exile since he was deported in March 2018 by former President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration.
He was abducted from his house in Runda, Nairobi, and detained at the Githunguri Police Station in Kiambu County on February 2, 2018. It was soon after he had 'sworn in' Raila Odinga as the 'People's President' at Uhuru Park, Nairobi.
Four days later, he was hounded out of the country, with chaotic scenes being witnessed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
