Declare corruption a national disaster, MPs tell President

23 March 2015, 11:37

Nandi - Two MPs from Nandi County have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to declare corruption a national disaster.

The MPs; Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills) and Julius Meli (Tinderet), said declaring the vice a national disaster will help in the fight against it.

Speaking at Samoei area in his constituency over the weekend, Keter said if graft is not fought now, public institutions stand the risk of collapsing completely.

“I am asking president Kenyatta to declare corruption a national disaster since the malady is now almost becoming a way of life in almost all institutions in kenya,” he said.

“Corruption has hampered service delivery and it is only the rich who get their right of way. We need a collective effort of all members of the community, starting with the president, to kick corruption out of this country,” added Keter.

Meli called for investigations into the alleged corruption claims dogging a section of the members of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

The legislator who ironically is a member of PAC said those found culpable of graft in the body should carry their own cross.

"There has been a lot of propaganda on media and smear campaign concerning PAC, but we are asking that an independent probe be carried out on members and those found to have received bribe be prosecuted,” said Meli, who absolved himself from blame.
