TARDA MD Steve Githaiga Suspended For Falsifying His Dates Of Birth To Stay In Employment Past His Retirement Age



TARDA MD Steve Githaiga.

EACC has recommended that Mr. Steven Maina Githaiga, the Managing Director of Tana and Athi River Development Authority (TARDA), be suspended with immediate effect until investigations into his conduct are concluded.

The Commission commenced investigations into allegations that Mr. Githaiga falsified his date of birth on his National Identity Card in order to continue being in employment past the retirement age.

“Considering the applicable law, Mr. Githaiga’s conduct constitutes serious ethical breaches contrary to the integrity and ethical requirements governing the conduct of state and public officers as laid out in various anti-corruption laws.” Says EACC.

At the same time, EACC has advised the CS Ministry of Energy and Petroleum to suspend Eng. James Rege, the Chairperson of the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO) from office until his case is determined.

Eng. Rege, who is also the former MP for Karachuonyo, is facing corruption charges relating to procurement of telemedicine equipment purchased by the Karachuonyo CDF.

“Section 62(1) of ACECA requires any public officer facing an offence under the Act, such as in the instant case, to be suspended from office until the case is determined.” Says EACC.

Still staying with corruption, EACC has communicated to the Chairperson of the Council of Governors advising against victimizing the Nation Media Group and/or any other service provider as it offends the Constitution and relevant laws that govern acquisition of goods and services by Public Entities.

“The directive of CoG in effect is a breach of Article 10 and Article 227 (1, 3 and 21) of the Constitution. The Commission warns that any Accounting Officer or other Public Officer implementing such unlawful instructions will be personally liable.” Warned EACC.
