Kenyans on twitter have today fearlessly joined in the war against corruption. It has been spoken by our leaders several times but the young blood now wakes up to ensure that action is taken.
This come at a time when Kenyans seem to be giving up in the war against corruption and the challenge is how to sustain optimism in an environment where many have lost hope.
President Uhuru Kenyatta a few months ago said he that he was ready to lose more friends in the current war against corruption.
“I have lost close friends over the war on corruption. We must be ready to lose friends and do what is right in the eyes of God,” said President Kenyatta adding that the country stands on the threshold of transformation.
This is something that the youth are ready for, if loosing friends is what it takes..this new energy proves that they are prepared to be fully involved in kicking out corruption in the country.
We have had enough…
In a recent public address, opposition leader who recently got a good deal in the AU also shared his sentiments on the issue of corruption…
“I sat down with President Kenyatta and agreed to launch a new journey, to a new Kenya; a Kenya where elections are not civil wars, where winners and losers embrace and where corruption is not a way of life.We also agreed to set up a taskforce to deal with issues we identified to be holding the country and to prevent their recurrence in future.”
“I accept that it has been difficult to fight corruption on the continent. I admit that even in Kenya, where I have joined President Kenyatta in waging a campaign against corruption, many remain skeptical. But I see a turning point. Now, in most African countries, people’s voice can no longer be ignored.
In Kenya too, we have taken strong actions against corruption, and will continue to do so. Our actions are having a strong positive impact.”
Well Kenyans have not seen the impact there is more that should be done and Kenyan are up for it.
Have a look at Kenyans reactions
As a nation we need to make a real fight against corruption. Make this crime have the worst punishment.
If correct measures are put in place, people will always shiver before attempting to engage in corruption. #YouthKEAgainstCorruption@KibetBenard_ @DanielMaithyaKE @Onchirii pic.twitter.com/LC97fCLECo

If the public stands united against corruption in such a way that no one is ready to offer bribes to get their work done then the corrupt officials will have no other option but to work in corruption free manner. ???@ItsBravin @ItsJnShine#YouthKEAgainstCorruption pic.twitter.com/qrAuQLYzPy
