Auditor General Edward Ouko has been cleared of abuse of office allegations.
DPP Keriako Tobiko said there was no evidence alluding to the charges as well as various other issues on the auditor general.
“The three charges by EACC on Edward Ouko were not supported by evidence inside the files,” the DPP said in a statement on Saturday.
Ouko was accused of engaging in a project without prior planning as well as willfully failing to comply with procurement laws.
EACC recommended in which Ouko be charged for engaging in irregular procurement of audit vault software without prior planning.
the idea can be alleged in which Ouko as well as some of his staff inflated the cost of the software by Sh22 million to Sh100 million.

yet Tobiko recommended the prosecution of deputy auditor general (corporate services) Stephen Kinuthia over fraud as well as corruption.
The anti-graft agency wants Kinuthia charged for abuse of office, citing failute to comply with procurement laws, the acquisition of proceeds of crim as well as dealing with suspect property.
“There can be sufficient evidence against Kinuthia on dealing with suspect property by receiving Sh27 million by the proceeds of the purchase of audit vault by OSI Kenya Ltd ,” Tobiko said.
Kinuthia can be also facing graft charges for corruptly giving a benefit of Sh500,000 to Charles Gichobi, sales executive of Oracle, as well as acquisition of proceeds of crime (Sh27 million).
EACC investigations were triggered by a letter by the National Treasury dated April 8, 2014 forwarding anonymous complaints raising several allegations against the office of the Auditor General.
