Churches challenge President Kenyatta on corruption

27 March 2014, 10:24

Nairobi - The National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) has called upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to end corruption instead of allegedly moaning in public over the issue.

The NCCK Secretary General, Reverend Peter Karanja, urged the President and his deputy, William Ruto, to take action on culprits of corruption who have been identified by agencies of their administration.

“It is therefore imperative that His Excellency, the President, and his deputy stop moaning in public over an issue upon which they should have taken administrative action,” said Karanja.

The church leader went on to challenge the government to “go beyond mere talk and voluntary pay cuts and instead take action to save the country from insolvency.

He urged the government to check corrupt practices within the public services which lead to wastage of government’s resources.

“(Government must) eradicate the practice where senior public officers were paid allowances to do the work they are paid to do and for which they draw their regular salaries,” said Karanja.

The churchman’s calls for an end to corruption in order to address wastage comes amid government call for voluntary pay cuts in the public service in order to address a ballooning wage bill.

The Wage Bill debate is currently ongoing in the counties.
