EACC Probing Alleged Forgery of Eldoret Muslim Association’s Registration Certificate

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has launched investigations into claims that the registration certificate of the Muslim Association Mosque Committee, Eldoret has been forged.

Jamal Diriwo Omari, a member of the Muslim community in Eldoret has petitioned the Registrar of Societies over what he claims impersonators illegally taking over management of the association’s affairs.

In a letter to the registrar, Omari notes that the current purported leaders of the association registered a different entity that deliberately omitted the name Eldoret from its registration certificate.

Request to facilitate us with final orders to our complaint for forgery of registration of the certificate for the Muslim Association Mosque Committee, Eldoret which was dully registered in 1957, against a new entity fraudulently registered as ‘Muslim Association Mosque Committee (omitting the word Eldoret,” read part of the letter to the Registrar of Societies.

The letter was also copied to EACC among other state agencies.

While the Office of the Registrar of Societies is yet to provide its response, the anti-graft agency says it was looking into the allegations.

Analyzing the matter

Responding to the letter on Monday, January 22, 2024, EACC noted that they will analyze the matter and deal with it accordingly.

They further said should they need any other information, they would reach out to Omari, the Eldoret Muslim community member.

Thank you for contacting us. This is EACC corruption reporting mail. Your report will be analyzed and dealt with according,” the agency said in an email reply seen by Uasin Gishu News.

If we require additional information, we shall contact you,” it added.

The matter has been pending at the office of the Registrar of Societies for several months now.

Last year, the Office of the Attorney General wrote to the society’s secretary asking for a response, failure to which it noted they would go ahead and provide their decision without relying on their input.

So far, the decision is yet to be made.

But as EACC now joins the probe, Omari says he is ready to furnish it with any information they will need to facilitate the process for a fair determination.

I’m available and ready to defend the constitution of my land and to defend the Muslim community without any fear,” he said.
