President's friends holding country's economy at ransom

04 November 2015, 10:40 Jackson Okata

Naivasha - Njoro member of parliament, Joseph Kiuna has accused some powerful and rich tycoons at State House and Harambee House of being behind the rampant corruption in government and holding the country at economic ransom.

Kiuna said that close friends of the president and powerful power brokers working at State House are the real orchestrators of the mega corruption scandals in government.

Speaking Wednesday morning in Nakuru town, Kiuna said that the same power brokers are misadvising the President that there is no corruption in government.

He said the powerful and rich individuals have completely blocked the war against corruption because they control government.

“It will be hard for the President to fight corruption if these tycoons continue operating from State House. The billions of shillings being stolen from government are being sent to foreign accounts owned by people at State House and Harambee House,” said Kiuna.

Kiuna said that even members of parliament know the tycoons but fear them to a point that they cannot dare mention them or even speak about what is happening in government.

“Members of parliament from the President's region know these people but they cannot talk about this issue because they will be punished politically and this will kill our economy," he said.

The legislator added that the country’s economy is currently at the mercy of a few and overly rich tycoons whom he said are holding the country at economic ransom.
