Written By: KBC Correspondent

The Institute of Engineers of Kenya (IEK) has called on Kenyans to report instances of misconduct and cases of quack practitioners in a bid to streamline the sector. 
South Rift IEK branch Chair Eng. Michael Kamau said the institute is re?organizing itself in the wake of rising cases of quack engineers operating in the region.
He has encouraged Kenyans to report instances of fake practitioners to the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK), a regulator, and the IEK for swift action on such matters.
Speaking Friday during the World Engineers Day celebrations in Nakuru Kamau said the move will enable the two agencies to rein in on quacks, to ensure that Kenyans get quality services.
Echoing same sentiments IEK member Abdi Fatah called on  in the region to work within their job ethics in a bid  root out quacks from the field.
While acknowledging a number of measures put in place by the EBK to tackle the menace, Abdi said more awareness has to be made among the public on the same.
County Roads Executive Eng.Ruben Maritim said they are working hand in hand with engineers to ensure quality works on all county projects.
He however warned that the county would not entertain instances of misconduct among engineers in their work saying they should stick together timelines.
