Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) Chairperson, Archbishop (Rtd) Dr. Eliud Wabukala’s six-year tour of duty has come to an end.
While addressing staff this morning at the Chairperson’s farewell meeting at the Integrity Centre, EACC CEO Mr. Twalib Mbarak lauded Dr. Wabukala as the first Chairperson to complete his tenure in the Commission’s history and thanked him for his wisdom, dedication and guidance.
Terming his end of tenure at the Commission as a normal change of vocation, Dr. Wabukala thanked staff for the team spirit that they had exhibited for the entire period he worked with them.
“When I first reported here six years ago we assembled at this very place in a tense atmosphere. I had been warned that I was coming to meet difficult people to work with. I saw people who, if given opportunity, had a lot to say. I requested that we work as a team. Thank you for the team spirit for the six years,” he said.
He thanked the CEO for his courage and commitment, which, he said, had contributed a lot in positively turning around the perception the public had of the Commission.
Tomorrow, January 17, is Dr. Wabukala’s last day in office. The vice chair, Dr. Monica Wanjiru Muiru will take over as interim chairperson until the recruitment process of a new chairperson is completed.
