The National Assembly has vowed to disband Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission if it fails to take the right course in fighting corruption in the country.

In a special sitting on Tuesday, the MPs approved the nomination of Twalib Mbarak as the new commission's Chief Executive Officer, to replace Halakhe Waqo.

Led by Majority leader Aden Dual and his minority couterpart John Mbadi, the MPs warned Twalib to root out corruption in the commission.

They added that if Twalib fails, they will have the commission mandate discharged by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

Duale said the commission has been riding the country in circles by presenting weak evidence in fight against the scourge.

“The war on corruption can never succeed if the institutions fighting corruption are corrupt. When the hunter is corrupt, then we are taking the country in circles,” said Duale.

The MPs claimed that some investigative managers are compromised which sabotage the war on graft.
