Nairobi - Murdered Kabete MP George Muchai died fighting corruption, president Uhuru Kenyatta has said in praise of the former legislator.
Muchai was killed by an assassins bullet last weekend in Nairobi for reasons investigators are yet to determine.
The president though was equivocal that his fight against graft is the likely reason behind his death and that his government would do its best to ensure that his murder is atoned.
He also added that his government would work hard to ensure that his legacy is optimized.
Speaking at ACK St. Josephs’ church in Kabete during the
funeral services the President said: "For those who have killed Muchai,
don’t think what you have done will stop this fight. We will continue
with what Muchai was fighting. We shall continue with the fight.”
The President said his Government will be firm in the war against
corruption and impunity to the end, adding that Muchai’s death has
strengthened this resolve.
" Time has come in this country for us to say No to the few
individuals who think they can continue perpetuating evil. We shall not
allow a few corrupt, evil and inept people to intimidate others. This
country is for over 40 million Kenyans and we shall win this war," he
Muchai will be laid to rest Friday.
