Jubilee should be lauded for its vicious war against corruption, not criticised-Duale

07 January 2016, 16:12 Arap Yego

Nairobi - National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale has responded to claims made by Cord leader Raila Odinga that the government has failed in the fight against corruption.

The opposition chief on Tuesday sharply criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee government over its inability to stop rampant corruption, pointing out that the administration is the most corrupt government the country has ever had since independence.

But speaking Wednesday at a press conference in Nairobi, Duale defended the Jubilee administration's record in the fight against graft, observing that no other government has waged a sustained war against the vice like President Kenyatta's.

"For the first time in history of the Kenya, the President has personally rallied the country, government, private sector and all others in the fight against corruption," said Duale

"The government has provided more funding to institutions such as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the Director of Public Prosecution and the Auditor General's office to boost their capacity resulting to the prosecution of over 375 graft cases,” he added.

According to the Garissa Township MP, all Kenyans, including the Cord leadership and its supporters should laud the government efforts in the fight against graft and support the war.

Among the leaders present at the press briefing were Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.

MPs present included Deputy Speaker Joyce Laboso (Sotik), Johson Sakaja (nominated) Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti South), Maina Kamanda (Starahe),  Kamau Ichungwa (Kikuyu), Alice Nganga (Thika Town) and Samuel Chepkonga (Ainabkoi).
