EACC chairperson Pastor Oginde now says the body must be given more powers to put more effort in fight against corruption, one of the them being speedy prosecution of court cases at most in six months.

“One of the biggest challenge is that the cases take years in court before they are finalized, during this period suspects will have enjoyed their proceeds of corruption or reelected back in to the office,” explained Mr Oginde, “We want cases of corruption to be solved within six months.”
