Leaders have supported President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ongoing war on graft, as he seeks to rid the country of the most prevalent bad vice that has held the nation’s progress hostage for a long time. The war on corruption has led to calls for a lifestyle audit, and an ongoing crackdown on illicit goods, with the contraband sugar saga still up in the air.
COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has called for a thorough investigation, covering all public institutions. President Kenyatta had ordered that all procurement and accounting officers in all Ministries, state departments, agencies to step aside to pave way for fresh vetting. “EACC officials should also be investigated,” said Atwoli, “Investigation should be extended everywhere there is a public institution so that the nation can be placed in line.” He lauded President Kenyatta’s tough stance against corruption.
Speaking in Sotik, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi also voiced his support for the war on corruption, saying all Kenyans must support the President’s endeavour, “It’s a must for all Kenyans to support that stance and help the President to finish his Big Four Agenda which will transform the lives of Kenyans,” he said.
