Nakuru - Two members of parliament allied to the United Republican Party have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop fighting corruption selectively if wants to win the war.
Speaking Monday in Nakuru town, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and his Keiyo south counterpart, Jackson Kiptanui said the President will only win the war against corruption if he stops defending his close associates who are implicated in corrupt deals.
The two said the President should stop being friends or defending anyone implicated with corruption.
“As URP, we are fully behind the President and his deputy in the war against corruption but we want to advice President that he should stop treating some of his ministers more specially than others. If one is implicated, let him or her step aside like the likes of Chirchir and Koskei,” said Sudi.

Kiptanui urged the President to preach water and take water in the war against corruption and stop shielding some government officials.
“There are some people in government who are being treated like little babies and more human than others and this is greatly hampering the war against graft,” he said.
The two legislators called on their TNA counterparts to stop defending people from their community who have been implicated with graft saying that the war on corruption is not a tribal one.
“Chirchir, Koskei and Keitany were forced to step aside and we never protested and our friends from TNA should also follow suit,” said Sudi.
