EACC issues a tough warning to MPs against doing the following.

The anti-corruption organization has cautioned politicians not to hire family members and friends if they see their constituency offices as personal property.

The Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) is being asked by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to evaluate the ownership structure and personnel at constituency offices.

According to information provided to the EACC, several MPs have hired relatives and irregularly claim rent payments.

The EACC said that PSC was at fault for failing to exercise due care to determine the ownership status of county or constituency offices held by MPs in a letter to PSC secretary Jeremiah Nyegenye on October 11.

"PSC depends on papers like lease agreements presented by MPs or constituency/Senate office managers for rent reimbursement without verifying the ownership of such office premises," the EACC said.

Abdi Mohamud, the deputy chief executive officer of the anti-graft organization, claimed that certain county offices were on properties owned by MPs, their relatives, or allies, which was against the law.
