In a past interview with KBC, the legendary musician cited fighting corruption as his main agenda and promised to combat the vice if he is elected as President.
“Since independence, we have been trying to fight; ignorance, poverty and disease. The amazing thing is that 58 years down the line we still have those three problems but now we have corruption as the fourth problem,” said the FPK Presidential aspirant.
“I do not think any of the candidates moving around looking for votes are really open to fight corruption. I am committed to doing so, with a record that is able to tackle graft based on my courage and experiences I have gone through,” he added.
He noted that lack of integrity and accountability among the political class was what ailed the country.
