Kenyan MPs pay working visit to Ghana’s EOCO

The object of the visit was to understudy EOCO’s mandate and strategy for policy formulation and implementation in Kenya

A 12-member delegation from the audit committee of the Kenyan National Assembly, led by Tom Mboya Odege paid a working visit to the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) on Monday (5 May).

The executive eirector of EOCO, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo- Danquah, together with her deputies and some unit heads welcomed the delegation.

She stated the vision, mission and objectives of the office.

She further shed light on the functions of the office and some preventive strategies such as sensitisation programmes for the general public on emerging crime trends. She added that the office also issues public statements and releases with the view of preventing the unsuspecting public from falling victim to criminals.

Some issues that were discussed touched on budget allocation for the office, court orders, whistle blowers, confiscation, seizure, asset recovery and management, collaboration with foreign partners and remittances of proceeds of crime back to victims or countries.

Odege expressed a lot of appreciation to Ghana for having very strong legal regimes that are implemented effectively. He said they will ensure that Kenya will be a beneficiary of all that they have learned from their visit.

The delegation was impressed by the magnitude of work EOCO has been doing and gave assurance to COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo -Danquah of their intentions to replicate the same in Kenya through policy formulation and implementation.
