Kitui East MP summoned by EACC over assault of Kenya Power employee
The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) has summoned Kitui East Member of Parliament Nimrod Mbai over the assault of a Kenya Power employee.
Speaking to the press, EACC Chief Executive Officer Twalib Mbarak condemned MP Mbai’s behaviour calling on Kenyans to choose their leaders wisely.
“Since Kenya got its independence, I have never heard of a case where an MP has beaten up a Kenya Power employee. Discussions had during this event have clearly shown that Kenyans need to choose their leaders wisely…these are the leaders you chose…who is to blame? You and me,” Mbarak said during the commemoration of the African Anti-Corruption Day held on Tuesday, July 11 at the University of Nairobi.
MP Mbai is expected to present himself to the EACC offices on Thursday, July 17 at 9 am for an interview and statement recording.
“The Commission notes that these allegations constitute serious ethical issues and if true would amount to a serious breach of the integrity and ethical requirements governing the conduct of State officers as laid out under Chapter Six of the Constitution and the Leadership and Integrity Act, 2012,” read a notice by the EACC CEO.
The notice indicated that a failure of MP Mbai to present himself as required, on conviction, will attract a fine of Sh300,000 or imprisonment for a term of three years or both.
Mbai is on the spot for slapping a Kenya Power engineer who was reportedly seeking to disconnect an illegal power line at the legislator’s home in Kitengela, Kajiado County.
