Deputy governor warns of devolving corruption

19 June 2013, 19:00 Wangui Joseph

Nyeri Deputy Governor Samuel Githaiga Wamathai Tuesday articulated his fears over devolving corruption to County offices if urgent and prudent measures are not taken to shun it.

Githaiga said chances of devolving corruption to the new public offices are higher, noting that corruption has been one of the emerging social problems facing the country and hindering it from social, health and economic development.

He urged locals to report corrupt matters and cases to the relevant authorities and assured them that his government is ready for zero tolerance of all forms of corruption by County public officers.

The remarks were contained in a speech read on his behalf by the County Transitional Coordinator Faith Mbugua during the launch of Integrated Public Complaints Referral Mechanisms centre by Ethics and Ant-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Nyeri town.

The Deputy Governor said corruption has for so long hindered service delivery, social justice and opportunities to the less privileged people in the society.

“The consequences of corruption in the society include wasteful spending of resources, inequalities and disparities, unethical business practices, unemployment opportunities, discrimination and ultimate poverty,” Githaiga noted.

Locals are expected to be reporting all manners of corruption, violation of human rights, hate speech, discrimination of any kind and maladministration among other vices to the new office.
