EACC Spells Doom for Leaders With Fake Academic Certificates

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has promised to confiscate money and property of those who used forged academic certificates to run for elective posts and won.

EACC Chief Executive Officer Twalib Mbarak said that soon, EACC would start seizing the assets of politicians who won elections but used forged certificates to secure those leadership positions.

"This commission will be patient until the legal process is completed. Once those leaders with forged academic certificates are found guilty, we will ensure that all the money paid to them as salaries and benefits are reclaimed. This will include taking their property to cover the money," Twalib Mbarak said.

Without disclosing the number of elected officials who are being monitored by the EACC for forging academic credentials, Mbarak said there were many cases before him involving politicians as well as government officials and those holding positions in public organizations.

However, Mbarak revealed that two current governors are among those charged with forging academic credentials. Recently, EACC arrested and prosecuted former Land Commissioners Wilson Gachanja and Zablon Mabeya and former head of the planning unit in Jabu Salim Mohamed in connection with corruption in 1994.

Mbarak stressed that public servants and elected officials would be held accountable for the corruption they perpetrated while in office.
