The Ethics and Ant-Corruption Commission (EACC) has recommended for the prosecution of former Judiciary Chief Registrar Gladys Boss Shollei over allegations of irregular procurement of Chief Justice’s resident.

The anti-graft agency wants Shollei charged alongside her deputy Francis Kakai Kissinger and members of the Judiciary Tender Committee for allegedly flouting the Public Procurement Act in acquiring a fully-furnished residential property for the Chief Justice.

EACC has since forwarded the file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Keriako Tobiko for action.

This comes just a week after the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) recommended for prosecution of Shollei and three others over loss of billions of shillings during her tenure as the Judiciary Chief Registrar.

The official Chief Justice resident is said to have been procured at a cost of Ksh 310 million.

Early April, Shollei accused EACC of ‘trying to shield some top-ranking government officials allegedly involved in corruption’.

In a statement sent to media houses, Shollei castigated the EACC for omitting Chief Justice Willy Mutunga and Independent and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair Ahmed Issack Hassan from the corruption list.

EACC has also recommended for charging of the Kenya Trade Network Agency Chief Executive Officer Alex Kabuga over allegations of irregularities and abuse of office.

However, the anti-graft commission has recommended for the dismissal of allegations of depriving former employees of the Kenya Railways Corporation House Number LR 3734/89 that had been set aside for purchase under the Tenant Purchase Scheme leveled against Esther Koimet, the Investment Secretary at the National Treasury.
