The NASA boss divulged that in the wake of the rampant practice, a taskforce will be established to end the vice.

Odinga also dismissed claims that he has been silent on recent corruption scandals amidst public outrage.

The former premier who has in the past been very vocal in the war against corruption, unearthing mega scandals and questionable dealings had not commented on the matter publicly until today.

Odinga who jetted into the country on Wednesday termed the claims “untrue” as public pressure mounts on leaders to take decisive action against the vice.

The former premier was addressing mourners in Western Kenya during the burial of Wycliffe Oparanya’s mother-in-law mama Margaret Shiundu.

A public protest is planned for 31 May to compel government officials and state agencies to bring those responsible to justice.

Most recently are the NYS nad the NCPB scandals that have seen the public lose more than 10 Billion to corrupt individuals working with officers from the respective ministries.

Top government officials have been sent home as President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto moved in to stump their authority and tame the rampant corruption.

Among those who have gone home are Youth PS Lilian Omollo and NYS Director-General Richard Ndubai whose dockets were extensively featured in the NYS scandal.
