Nakuru - The civil society wants the director of public prosecutions (DPP), Keriako Tobiko to resign for failure to nail down and prosecute corrupt senior government officials.
Speaking Tuesday evening in Nakuru, the Rift Valley civil societies chair, Antony Kimani said that Tobiko has failed the nation in the fight against corruption by failing to prosecute people even after being presented with clear evidence to implicate them.
“Going by the recent trend of clearing senior government officials by the DPP, the civil societies want him to resign and allow a Kenyan who is willing to fight corruption to occupy that office,” said Kimani.

“It cannot be that when a cabinet minister is implicated in corruption even with clear evidence, the DPP tells us that there is no evidence. We know he is protected by the security of tenure clause but he should give room for another Kenyan to do what he has clearly failed to do,” he added.
Kimani called on Kenyans to take up the responsibility of fighting corruption and stop relying on politicians to do it.
“Parliament itself is corrupt; the government is corrupt; the DPPs office is full of corruption and the EACC is rotten. Kenyans should rise up and fight corruption in this nation for the good of future generations,” he said.
