KACC board softens stance on Ringera
Posted on Wednesday, September 02, 2009 @ 19:29:07 CDT by kwpnews


NAIROBI , ( Naisula Leesuda/ Margaret Kalekye) - The Kenya Anti Corruption Commission Advisory Board on Wednesday appeared to have softened its stance on re-appointment of Justice Aaron Ringera as KACC Director.

Addressing the press after a meeting of the board members, the advisory board chairman Okong'o Omogeni said Ringera will continue to serve as Director until the matter is sorted out.

"We are seeking audience with the president and other stakeholders to deliberate on the way forward".

He said they had formally written to the President, Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister, Parliament and the Attorney General to seek the best way forward since they were not consulted in the appointments.

Omogeni said the deliberations will be made public next week.

The reappointment of Ringera and his two deputies Mrs. Fatuma Sichale and Smokin Wanjala has elicited sharp opposition from civil societies, politicians and members of parliament saying the move was unconstitutional.


The KACC Advisory Board on Tuesday rejected the appointments and termed the appointments as unconstitutional.

"The action by the executive is contrary to the law. It is unprocedural, and a clear contempt of our institutions" he said.

In Parliament, angry MPs threatened to paralyze House Business in protest against Justice Ringera's reappointment to a second five-year term without their approval.

On Monday, President Mwai Kibaki reappointed Justice Ringera for a further five-year term with effect from 8th September 2009.

Also reappointed in the gazette notice were assistant directors Mrs. Fatuma Sichale and Smokin Wanjala.

President Kibaki made the reappointments under section 8 sub section 4 of the Anti Corruption and Economic Crimes Act.

"On approval of a person by the National Assembly, under sub section (3), the President shall appoint the person concerned to the office in respect of which the approval was given."

ODM has also distanced itself with the re-appointment of Justice Ringera saying the due process of the law was not followed.
