Nairobi - Meru Governor Peter Munya says that government officials implicated in corruption must resign first before others do.
Munya, speaking Friday in Nairobi said that there was no way persons within government agencies that have been implicated in corrupt deals should remain in their seats while those elected resign.
He added that it was the responsibility of the national government to first show its seriousness in dealing with the vice.
" Those in government should resign first," he said.
" The president's speech was very good and his call is long overdue and we want to fight corruption. The message should however be heeded from government first to show that there is seriousness about fighting corruption.
Uhuru has been under pressure to make a statement move about the high levels of corruption in government.
" Corruption is a cancer that has to be fought hard and my government is ready to fight it," Uhuru stated during his State of the Nation Address Thursday.
move will mean that senior officials such as Treasury PS Davis Chirchir, IEBC chairman Isack Hassan amongst others will have to step aside to allow EACC investigations
