WILL HE KEEP HIS WORD?
I was lucky to attend the Kenyatta day celebrations(HEROES DAY) at the Nyayo stadium and my heart skipped a beat when I heard our dear president talk of corruption which like I have heard many say has become a way of life in Kenya and the question that came to my mind was will these officers be fired? We have heard these lines before. I just want to share with you people what Kibaki said during his speech.In his address to the nation during celebrations to mark the 46th Kenyatta Day at the Nyayo Stadium, President Kibaki ordered the accounting officers to institute sanctions including sacking and prosecuting errant officers who commit crimes of corruption.
Acknowledging that the war against crime was critical towards realization of Kenya ‘s development blue print Vision 2030, the Head of State called on relevant arms of the Government to conduct effective investigations and prosecutions with regard to corruption cases. The President said, “The Grand Coalition insists on fighting corruption and the culture of impunity because we know that integrity in the management of public institutions is critical to the attainment of the VISION 2030 goals.
During the celebrations the President also asked wananchi to fearlessly expose corrupt officers especially those who solicit bribes in order to eventually eradicate corruption and restore public confidence in their institutions. The President said, “I am happy to note that today there are fewer incidents of grand corruption reported by the National Audit Office. This is due to the tougher procurement laws, the oversight role of Parliamentary committees, and scrutiny by the civil society and the media.”
Kenyans let us expose all these corrupt people who have led so much suffering in our country and we can always sat it again – AM PROUDLY KENYA. JUMA
