MP arms youths with whips to attack corrupt government officials

War against corruption escalated

A whip and a wooden club

Dagoretti South member of parliament Simba Arati has kicked off a plan to tackle corruption in Kenya that will involve corporal punishment.

Speaking on Tuesday, the vocal MP promised to arm youth in Nyamira and Kisii counties with whips to flog corrupt county government officials.

Arati, who was selected as a community spokesman, announced that traffic police officers would be first to be stripped, flogged and frog-marched in the street in the new unusual punishment.

"The youths have a hand in ending this rampant corruption which has wrecked our community into poverty.

"Spare no chance in entertaining such officers, get hold of them, strip them and frog-march them in the streets before they are taken to court," Arati urged.

Over 10,000 youths working with Arati

The legislator runs various youth initiatives that engage over 10,000 youth in the region.

He vowed to dig into his pockets to ensure that the whips are bought and in use saying that corruption should not be let to go unchecked.

"It is unfortunate that the leaders who are in charge of resources are only interested in their personal enrichment. The youth should now be having a role of overseeing. Let them arrest and frog match anyone engaged in corruption in the streets.

"We must flush out thieves if we want to be safe as an economy.

"As a spokesman of the Gusii Community, I don't want to represent people by only engaging in political rhetoric, but also by empowering them socially and economically," he explained.
