President Kenyatta urged to eliminate corruption cartels in government

22 June 2015, 11:41 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - President Uhuru Kenyatta has been urged to eliminate corruption cartels in different departments of the government.

Senate Chief Whip, Beatrice Elachi on Sunday claimed that there were cartels which are determined to ensure the government fails to deliver.

“There are corruption cartels inside the government. They are in Legislature, devolution departments, National Youth Service (NYS) and other areas. They are determined to ground the government and tarnish its name,” she claimed.

The nominated Senator made the remarks during a church service at St. Peter’s ACK church in Nyeri town where she and other lawmakers had escorted Deputy President William Ruto for a funds drive.

She was in the company of Senators Kembi Gitura (Murang’a), Kiraitu Murungi (Meru), Lenny Kivuti (Embu), Mutahi Kagwe (Nyeri), Kimani Wamatangi (Kiambu), Muriuki Karue (Nyandarua) and G.G Kariuki (Laikipia).

Elachi accused the opposition, Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) of spreading propaganda.

“The opposition must respect the government of the day and its initiatives instead of spreading lies,” she said.

Kiambu Senator, Kimani Wamatangi, appreciated the British Government for withdrawing the travel advisory it had issued following insecurity incidences in Coast region.

“Security is high for everyone and the country is secure. Thanks to British government for approving to the world that Kenya is safe,” he said.

The event was also attended by MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu), Kanini Kega (Kieni), Esther Murugi (Nyeri town), Mary Wambui (Othaya) and Ndung’u Gethenji (Tetu).
