Ruto issues warning on corruption, reveals what is worrying him with investigations underway
Warning come ahead of a public protest planned for 31 May 2018
“I want to assure the country that the purge against corruption has started and no one despite their status in the country will be spared,”
Speaking in Gilgil on Saturday, the DP noted that recent move by people implicated in the scandals to seek anticipatory bails was a cause to worry about.
“We are worried by the recent move by suspects to seek anticipatory bails from the courts as this is derailing the fight against graft,” Ruto said.
The DP also sought to assure the public that together with President Uhuru Kenyatta, they were fully committed to fighting corruption, warning that no one would be spared in the ongoing fight against the vice.
“I want to assure the country that the purge against corruption has started and no one despite their status in the country will be spared,” Ruto said.
The DP also assured all state agencies involved in the ongoing investigations that they have the full support of the government and should stop at nothing in bringing those responsible to justice.
“The investigators should not let us down and they should move with haste and make sure that all those responsible face the law.
All those NCPB managers and the traders involved in the maize scandal where farmers have been left unpaid will have to pay for this” said Ruto.
Several MPs who accompanied the DP in the tour of Gilgil decried the runaway corruption in government that has got the public questioning the government’s commitment in taming the vice.
Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika noted that “We have millions of hardworking Kenyans whose sweat is going to waste due to corruption cases where a few persons are benefitting and this is very wrong”.
