President pledges whistle blowing website

17 October 2013, 12:00

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has pledged to launch a website through which members of the public can report corrupt government officials.

The plans come on the back of incessant corruption blamed on civil servants.

“All you (members of the public) will be required to do is log in; there will be a place where you will record the name, ministry alongside department and position of the corrupt official to get them arrested,” Kenyatta said while delivering a keynote speech at the Women and Youth Expo in the capital.

The President further asked government officials to desist from any forms of graft as these hindered economic empowerment of individuals seeking government contacts.

He added that government employees must be content with their salaries.

“If an official feels that their salary is insufficient, there is alternative for them to quit and seek other forms of employment,” said Kenyatta.

The President warned the Public Procurement Directorate to seal all the loopholes that allowed graft to compromise the procurement process noting that no laxity would be tolerated.

Kenyatta has previously raised concern at corruption levels among government officials, warning that culprits would be dismissed from their jobs.

He meanwhile added that the government would ensure that women, the youth and persons with disabilities benefitted from the 30 percent stake government had allocated them in its empowerment drive.
