Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot has dismissed the government’s fight against corruption terming it a mere gimmick intended to delude Kenyans.
Dr Aukot criticised the drive by Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji, terming it a ploy aimed at displaying a ‘non-existent commitment’ to fight corruption.
“The purported fight against corruption is a plastic one and in essence, a futile public relations exercise that the government is engaging Kenyans in.
“The DPP has been taking Kenyans for a ride as none of the corruption cases he has instigated has borne fruit. He does not seem to have a concrete intent to fight the vice,” said Dr Aukot.
Speaking to journalists on Tuesday, Dr Aukot said there was a lack of discipline in the country’s leadership hence the uncivil way the country’s different political factions are constantly confronting each other.
“We cannot be building bridges with the rest of Kenyans when our leaders themselves keep burning any existing bridges especially when using foul language and make mean utterances in public,” he Dr Aukot argued.
He also dismissed the 2022 elections talk terming it immature as the government is yet to fulfil most of its pre-election pledges to Kenyans.
Dr Auko challenged the President his deputy and Raila Odinga to be civil to each other and Kenyans who hold contrary opinions to their personal pacts.
"What we are witnessing is not the Kenya we should be nurturing this year going forward,” he said.
