Wetangula urges Kenyans to support fight against corruption

Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula is urging Kenyans to support the President in the fight against corruption.

Wetangula is also challenging all relevant government agencies to work in harmony in order to pin down perpetrators of the vice.

His sentiments coming amid sustained pressure on the government to deal decisively with importers of contraband sugar.

Wetangula warned that if left unchecked, the ongoing succession politics could derail the war against corruption.

Calls that appeared to resonate with a group of political leaders who were attending a church service in Gitui catholic church in Murang’a county led by Baringo senator Gideon Moi.

The building bridges initiative has however been blamed for the rising cases of corruption. Mavoko MP Patrick Makau argues that while many were busy preaching peace, others were busy looting public coffers as some imported contraband goods.

On Sunday, a section of Opposition allied lawmakers called for the destruction of all confiscated stocks of contraband sugar.

Led by Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi, the leaders urged the President to issue the directive to help deter barons from flooding the market with the commodity.

Meanwhile, a section of ODM leaders have dismissed proposals to form a commission of inquiry to investigate the importation of contraband in the country.

The leaders allege that the proposal by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi was a political gimmick aimed at pushing personal political agenda at the expense of national interests.
