EACC Settles on Twalib Abdallah Mbarak for CEO Job



The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission has nominated Twalib Abdallah Mbarak to be the new CEO at the anti-graft watchdog.

Mbarak floored 13 other hopefuls including the current EACC deputy CEO Michael Mubea. EACC said it received 71 applications.

Others who were shortlisted for interviews included: Ms Sarah Kilemi, National Police Service Commission board official Murshid Mohamed, Mr James Warui, Mr Vincent Omari, Mr Jillo Kasse, Mr Chege Thenya, Mr Reuben Chirchir, Mr Cyrus Oguna, Mr Abdi Mohamud, Mr Twalib Mbarak, Mr Joel Mabonga and Ms Lucy Wanja.

If approved by Parliament, Twalib Abdallah Mbarak will take over from Halakhe Waqo who assumed office in January 2013, when EACC replaced the now-defunct Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission.

Waqo’s term is set to end in the next two months. The EACC chief executive post is a one-term non-renewable contract of six years.

Twalib Abdallah Mbarak is currently the Security and Integrity Manager at the power generating firm Kengen. He holds a masters of arts degree in armed conflict and peace studies.

Qualifications for the EACC CEO post include a post-graduate degree from a recognised university, and clearance certificates from the Kenya Revenue Authority, Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Higher Education Loans Board, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Credit Reference Bureau.
