“In China, when a government officials if found to have engaged in corruption, the next thing they face is hanging or life imprisonment and this has helped China to deal firmly with the issue of corruption. The Kenyan government should act hard on corrupt officials in government by sending them to jail for the rest of their lives and even hanging some of them,” said Gikaria.
He added: “There is no need to suspend people or simply sack them without punishing them because this will not deter others.”
