President Uhuru Kenyatta has continued to tighten the war against graft as a way of earning him a legacy. However, his move has proved not lenient to team Tanga Tanga, which has kept on crying that their key man is being targeted. As a result, Parliament will tomorrow(Tuesday) set aside all its business to discuss Uhuru’s fight against corruption.
Lugari MP Ayub Savula said National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has already approved a motion he filed last week seeking to have the House discuss the fight against graft and the debate around it.
“We met as ANC party caucus and agreed that I draft a motion asking the august house to debate graft and what needs to be done in the face of emerging mega corruption,” he said.
Savula said Parliament will also discuss the independence of the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions in the war on corruption.
“We shall also discuss the emerging debate around the resolve by President Uhuru Kenyatta to fight graft and the right channels those opposed to the ongoing anti-graft war should use,” he said.
Savula spoke during the burial of Priscilla Muganda at Eshikhoni Primary School in Navakholo on Saturday. He said the sitting will also debate claims that the war on corruption is being used to target leaders from the Kalenjin community.
“We want people to know they can either bring their issues about any government order to Parliament or go to court instead of shouting on the roadside and funerals,” he said.
He said Deputy President William Ruto should not drag his fights with opposition leader Raila Odinga in the war on corruption.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has claimed the war on corruption was designed to terminate the dams project in Elgeyo Marakwet county wand charging officials from the Rift Valley.
Governors Stephen Sang (Nandi), Joyce Laboso (Bomet) and Senator Samson Cherargei are among Rift Valley leaders opposed to the DCI George Kinoti’s investigations.
Savula said that leaders should stop using their communities as shields in the war on graft.
