Mombasa governor declares war on corruption

09 December 2013, 16:48 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Mombasa County governor, Ali Hassan Joho has declared war on corruption by sending a stern warning to all officers in the County government who engage in the vice.

Addressing the public in Mombasa Monday afternoon, Joho said punitive measures will be taken against any officer in his government found engaging in graft.

He revealed that the County was planning to establish a vibrant anti-corruption committee to enforce the fight against corruption and that will help place Mombasa in a better place economically.

“I will not spare any County official who will be found involving themselves in corruption cases, since it is their prerogative to remain accountable to citizens who elected them. Officials who will be found guilty shall be arrested, exposed and persecuted," Said joho.

He revealed that his government has made the fight against corruption a priority and that an anti-corruption committee would be formed to help fight the menace, appealing to the private sector to participate more in the fight against corruption.

“The subject of integrity is paramount towards the achievement of prosperity, equity, sustainability and high quality of life. To succeed, we must manage our resources prudently and with integrity, “said the Governor.

He said Kenya was named fourth among countries with the highest cases of bribery in July by The Global Corruption Barometer 2013, adding that that would impact the growth of the economy if proper measures are not put in place.

“Corruption is one of the major challenges facing the socio-economic transformation of the country and the attainment of the medium development goals. Any achievement therefore cannot be sustainable in an environment where corruption thrives," he noted.

Joho also revealed that the Mombasa County government is fully involved in the fight against graft by establishing mechanisms to monitor staff in order to prevent corrupt behavior.

“Plans are already underway to initiate integrity clubs in schools to train students on desirable virtues and we urge all parents to inculcate the virtues of integrity in their children,” Said Joho.

He also encouraged citizens to report the corrupt County officials they encounter in order to curb the exercise promising to set up suggestion boxes at chiefs’ offices.

He was speaking during a ceremony to mark the World Anti-Corruption Day at Makadara Grounds in Mombasa on Monday afternoon.
