Cleric wants those involved in Anglo Leasing prosecuted
20 May 2014, 08:03
Nyeri - A Presbyterian Church senior cleric Monday called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of those who were implicated in the Anglo Leasing scandal that drained off billions of shillings from the country’s public coffer.
Reverend Thegu Mutahi, the PCEA Deputy Secretary General, said it is harmful to use taxpayers’ money in paying such a debt when those who were involved in it are walking free.
Speaking to the media in Munyu, Kieni Constituency, the man of God said that President Uhuru Kenyatta must abide by the report he submitted when he was PAC chair and fully implement it as it is.
He stated that those who were mentioned in the report are known and must be prosecuted and be made to pay the money instead of burdening the already burdened Kenyans.
“When President Kenyatta was PAC chair, he carried out investigations within and out of our and we have all reasons to believe that the report he made was credible and we are therefore demanding that he sticks to it,” he said.
Mutahi stated that if the government pays the money as indicated, a painful trend will crop up in the country where criminals will be stealing from the public knowing very well that the money will later be paid.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!.
