Transparency International Kenya welcomes the order for the immediate prosecution of 13 individuals and three firms on criminal charges related to the Anglo Leasing scandal by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko.

Kenyans have for a decade waited for the prosecution and punishment of individuals linked to the Ksh 56 Billion scandal. Anglo Leasing has up to date symbolised the longstanding, poor commitment that successive governments have demonstrated towards the fight against corruption in Kenya. That is why this development is worth of note.

Punishment of those responsible for the scandal and recovery of the proceeds from this scam is critical in establishing Kenya as serious in the fight against corruption and to boost the confidence of the public in our legal system.

We welcome this latest development in pursuit of justice for the Anglo Leasing cases. We hope justice will finally be served. While we laud the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for the progress made so far in this case, we are reminded that there are other scandals crying for justice. This should come firmly and swiftly.
