Uhuru orders Senior Government Officials to step aside

The officers have been instructed to hand over to their deputies with immediate effect.

"Heads of Procurement and Accounting units in Ministries, Departments, Agencies and State Corporations have been instructed to step aside with immediate effect. Before they vacate office, they have also been instructed to hand over to their deputies," a statement from the Presidency read.

In the statement, President Kenyatta also ordered the officers to submit their personal information to the office of head of Head of Public Service to be delivered on Friday June 8, 2018.

The information includes their assets, liabilities and previous record of service.

"H.E the President is committed to creating a public service that serves the needs and aspirations of kenyans without taking undue advantage of their offices to enrich or otherwise benefit themselves," the statement read

Lie detectors

Speaking during the 55th Madaraka Day celebrations in Kinoru Stadium in Meru County last Friday, President Kenyatta ordered that all Procurement heads in government undergo fresh vetting in a bid to stem on the rising corruption cases currently facing the country.

President Kenyatta directed that the vetting exercises be concluded on June 30th.

The Head of State also directed that lie detectors will be used during the vetting of procurement and accounting officers in the ongoing war on graft.
