EACC Releases Two Corruption Reports On Siaya County Government

Following reports of rampant corruption, including alleged embezzlement of public funds by senior officials in the Siaya County Government, EACC embarked on various interventions in accordance with its mandate.

Besides investigations for possible prosecution and asset recovery which are now at the tail end, the Commission, in February 2023, undertook an in-depth audit of Siaya County Government systems, policies, procedures and practices to identify and secure the sealing of systemic weaknesses and loopholes that allow corruption in the County Government.

Having completed the Corruption Risk Assessment targetting the County Executive and County Assembly, the Commission has today handed over two Corruption Reports to Siaya Governor Hon. James Orengo and County Assembly Speaker Hon. George Okonde to implement the EACC reform recommendations therein.

The reports were launched by EACC Commissioner John Ogallo in a function held at Siaya County Government Offices. The Commission also launched a Corruption Prevention Committee to be established in the County Government to spearhead corruption prevention.

EACC will monitor the implementation of the Reports which is expected to boost systems integrity and alleviate theft of public funds, as the Commission finalizes investigations on the criminal aspects of the matter initiatives.
