The Ethic and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has recovered assets worth Sh2.7 billion in the last four months from corrupt individuals through alternative dispute resolution, the agency has said.
EACC Chief Executive Officer Twalib Mbarak made this revelation during this year's commemoration of Africa Anti-Corruption Day in Nairobi on Thursday.
Mr Mbarak said the agency has intensified fight against corruption in the country.
“In the last four months, the commission has recovered stolen assets worth approximately Sh2.7 billion through alternative dispute resolution as opposed to an average of Sh1.5 billion in the last five years,” he said.
Among the property that was recovered in the period include University of Nairobi land situated on Galana Road that had been grabbed and allocated to a private company by the name of Aberdares Engineering Contractors Limited.
“Some of the success stories about alternative dispute resolution in this regard include the recovery of the Kilimani plot next to the Yaya Centre which was handed over to the University of Nairobi,” he stated
