Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has broken its silence after claims that two of its officers had raided lawyer Dr John Khaminwa’s offices on Saturday July 3, 2021.
Through a statement posted via its social media handles on Sunday morning, the anti-graft agency distanced itself from any operations that allegedly took place at Dr Khaminwa’s offices.
The commission said that the media reports suggesting that EACC visited the offices of the Senior Counsel are unfounded.
“EACC wishes to notify the public that it did not conduct any operation yesterday and media reports suggesting that EACC visited the offices of John Khaminwa Senior Counsel are unfounded,” the commission posted.
Reports on Saturday emerged that that police officers had visited Khaminwa’s office following his submission on the BBI case on Friday, July 2.
Commenting on the matter, Khaminwa dismissed reports that police officers visited him, rather, he noted that imposters stopped by and asked for money. He added that the impersonaters referred to a matter that the firm had previously handled.
“They claimed to be police officers on duty but I did not get the impression that they were officers at all. They asked for money but we did not give them,” Khaminwa stated.
