By Kass Online Team

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) says it has recovered Sh.2.7 billion over the last for months.

EACC director Twali Mbarak said Thursday that the proceeds were recovered through “alternative dispute resolution” saying that the move was a positive gain. In the previous five years, only Sh. 1.5 billion were recovered.

“In the last four months, the Commission has recovered stolen assets worth approximately Sh2.7 billion through ADR as opposed to an average of Sh1.5 billion in the last five years. So, the ADR is working,” Mr. Mbarak said while speaking during the third Africa Anti-Corruption Day Commemoration in Nairobi.

On his part, EACC Chairman Eliud Wabukala explained that the aim of the anti-graft body is to “prioritise high impact cases, asset recovery, prevention of corruption and promotion of ethics and standards.”
