Duale: Government serious in war on graft

27 March 2014, 17:09 William Korir

Nairobi - Majority leader in parliament Aden Duale says that the government is serious in its war on corruption saying that over 100 officers have been sacked over the vice.

The government has been accused of being slow in reacting to cases of corruption and graft, which have so far blighted the Jubilee government.

Various government officials have stated the stance by the executive in dealing with corrupt officials including president Uhuru Kenyatta, who has urged zero tolerance on graft.

And in his speech in the state of the nation address Thursday, the president reiterated the government's mission to reduce the number of corruption cases in the public sector.

" There is a big problem with graft and we have to admit that it is an issue for the government, he said.

He did add that the government is doing its best to fight the menace even though statistics have shown an increase in graft cases.

In his defence, Duale was equivocal that the government is on top of matters corruption saying that there is a growing search for corrupt persons.

" We have to admit that there is corruption and the president has alluded to that.

" That said, the government is doing its best to fight it and so far we have seen more than 100 officials being sacked due to corruption, he said.

He did concur with the president in saying that there is still need to encourage anti-corruption measures to ease public wastage.
