Deputy President William Ruto now says some politicians are trying to hijack the success being witnessed in the fight against corruption to position themselves for 2022.
Speaking while addressing a global leadership summit in Nairobi, Ruto said the country has independent institutions that have been empowered to tame the vice and must therefore be allowed to do their work without undue pressure.
Ruto who opened the Global Leadership Summit at the Christ Is The Answer Ministries CITAM, Valley Road, said the government is doing its best to slay the ghost of corruption.
He however said it is unfortunate that the process has been captured by politics in the end undermining the efforts.
He said that the government had invested resources in financing independent institutions to tame the vice.
Ruto who was addressing more than 4000 leaders who are attending the 2 day summit said despite criticisms from some quarters, the government had made strides in the fight against corruption.
He urged leaders not to abuse powers bestowed unto them by engaging in activities that add no value to the people calling on the clergy to be on the front line not only in preaching good stewardship but developing a mortally upright society for future posterity.
