DPP asked to prosecute lawmakers implicated in corruption

30 November 2015, 13:23 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has called for prosecution of governors and lawmakers implicated in corruption and abuse of office.

Kega asked the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Keriako Tobiko to initiate trial for governors, senators and other elected leaders whose names have been adversely mentioned in graft.

Speaking in his constituency at St. James ACK Manyatta Church, Narumoru area, Kega said DPP must proof to Kenyans his commitment to eradicate corruption.

“The DPP’s office must confirm it has powers. If not, Tobiko should ask parliament to make laws that are favourable and that give him more powers for successful prosecution of graft culprits,” he said.

Kega reiterated that Mount Kenya MPs alleged to be opposing President Uhuru Kenyatta were just opposing corruption and misuse of public resources but not the Presidency.

“All Mount Kenya MPs are supporting President Kenyatta. When we speak against malpractices in government, some politicians take it as disloyalty to the President. The President knows we are loyal to him contrary to claims by some leaders,” said Kega.

He stated that corruption was a cancer bedevilling the country leading to increase in poverty levels.

The MP further asked national assembly speaker, Justin Muturi to call for quick vetting of Ethics and Ant-Corruption Commission (EACC) new commissioners.

He opined that the parliamentarians should adjourn recess in order to debate the anti-graft commissioners and also laws proposed by the private sector to curb corruption.
