The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) has stated that the letter making rounds on social media regarding arrest of Meru Governor, Kiraitu Murungi, and his family is fake.

The letter first appeared on Tuesday 20th July 2021 on social media alleging that the EACC had issued an arrest warrant for the governor, his wife, and their three children over a corruption case of 2 billion shillings.

According to the letter, EACC had conducted investigations and had allegedly found the four guilty of embezzling the funds by paying companies connected to officials from Meru County Government a sum of the said amount in unclear deals.

It further went on to state that the commission had summoned the ‘suspects’ to the EACC headquarters in Nairobi, after which they were to be arrested and late arraigned in a court of law for their crime.

However, the EACC through its Twitter account termed the letter as fake stating that it had not originated from the commission.

The anti-graft agency Chief Executive Officer, Twalib Mbarak cleared the air stating that Kenyans should not believe in a letter that has no grounds since it was not posted from their official social media account.

“We have no plans of arresting Governor Kiraitu, the letter is fake. Our official communication will always post on our EACC social media accounts,” said Twalib.

Twalib Mbarak further added that the commission is up to the task and more cases are being handled by their team. once they are through, Kenyans will judge their work and no public funds will get lost in the hands of few individuals as it has been happening.

The letter e, emerged shortly after Governor Kiraitu Murungi had dumped Jubilee Party citing that the party has become a “wild horse” with no clear destination. He said that the Jubilee party is now acting like a flag being blown away by winds of NARC and Party of National Unity (PNU), which had both died in maternity after “delivering” the presidents.
