Make corruption capital offence, Senator

15 May 2015, 18:25 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - A senator has sensationally called for amendment of the Kenyan law to include the death sentence to individuals involved in corruption practices, which sabotage development projects.

Murang’a Senator who also doubles up as deputy speaker to the senate, Kembi Gitura, expressed concern over the rising incidences of corruption which he says can only be healed by amending the law to ensure that those found guilty get maximum punishment.

While addressing Murang’a County secondary school heads during their annual conference, Kembi also proposed to teachers to start educating students on the dangers of indulging in crimes such as robbery with violence, corruption and drug abuse.

" There is need for all Kenyans to participate in saving the country from corrupt individuals who have been supplying the government with substandard goods and services," said the senator while calling for stiffer penalties for those who have perfected the art of corruption and robbery with violence.

He defended the role of the senate in scrutinizing development projects being undertaken by the county governments saying that its oversight role should not be construed as waging war against governors.

He added that the senate is in talks with the national assembly to see to it that allocation to the counties is increased from KES 283 billion to KES 291 billion in the next financial year.
