ODM decries discrimination in war against graft

02 October 2015, 11:19

Nairobi - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Chairman, John Mbadi has claimed that there is discrimination in Jubilee government when it comes to war on graft.

Mbadi said Jubilee MPs, led by National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale, clearly indicated they support corruption in Kenya when they vowed to block a proposed motion by Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter to have Devolution CS Anne Waiguru step aside over corruption allegations.

“The backlash Keter has received from Jubilee is really unfair. He is not the only Rift Valley MP who has called for the impeachment of Waiguru.

“It is high time Jubilee realized that corruption is really hurting the country and stop playing politics with their tyranny of numbers in this matter,” Mbadi said.

However, Duale quickly dismissed Mbadi’s claims, telling him to stop poking his nose in Jubilee’s affairs.

“The claims by ODM Chairman are very shocking. Why is he spending a lot of time and energy on matters that do not concern him in Jubilee?

“Who will now be the alternative voice for the opposition in this country?” Duale posed.

He said the opposition should stop politicizing corruption issues in Kenya, and instead leave the matters to be handled by independent institutions created under the new constitution.

“The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions are independent from the Executive. Let us give them time to handle this,” Duale added.

According to Duale, Waiguru was a whistleblower of the alleged corruption at NYS and will therefore be a prosecution witness in the case.
