Ruto puts corrupt officials on notice

30 September 2013, 15:51

Nairobi - Deputy President, William Ruto, issued a warning to corrupt civil servants saying the government will dismiss them from their jobs.

Ruto raised concern of the civil servants whom he alleged swindled the government through non-existence procurement processes and other forms of misuse of public funds.

“We will not have any mercy on swindlers and we will sack such fellows”, said the Deputy President after a church service.

Ruto’s warning to public officials comes a few days after the President Uhuru Kenyatta called for a cabinet meeting where he warned that non-performance would not be tolerated in his government

He noted that cases of corruption were still high in the country despite reforms undertaken by the government in the past few years.

Meanwhile, Ruto said the current security challenges facing the country were “small” compared to the blessings that God has bestowed Kenya with.

He urged Kenyans not to be distracted by the current misfortunes but rather focus on the “brighter future that awaits.”

He also stated that the government had learnt from the terror tragedy and the government had reinforced security measures throughout the country to avoid a recurrence of the setback.

More than 60 people were killed at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi following an attack by Al Shabaab terrorists.
