The Kenya Anti-corruption Commission (Kacc) has launched investigations into the appointment of the Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) Managing Director Joseph Kipketer Koskei.

Kacc Director General PLO Lumumba, said the anti-graft body had received credible information about the process Industrialisation minister Henry Kosgey used to appoint the new MD.

He, however, did not disclose the information Kacc had received, saying “the commission is still examining them”.

“Kacc has created a special team to deal with the matter,” he told journalists during a meeting with the council of Association of Professional Societies in East Africa (Apsea), yesterday at the Professional Centre, Nairobi.

Explain appointment

Dr Lumumba’s sentiments followed a request by the Apsea council through its chairman, Dr Daniel Ichangi to investigate Mr Koskei’s appointment and the firing of former Kebs managing director, Kioko Mang’eli.

Dr Ichangi said Apsea will sue the minister for violating the appointment procedure specified by Kebs board and going against the spirit of the new Constitution.

Dr Lumumba disclosed that besides the Kebs case, Kacc is investigating a Sh1.1 billion scandal over the purchase of property in Tokyo, Japan and Brussels, Belgium by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
