Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday vowed to deal decisively with corruption blamed for under- development in the country and urged Kenyans to forge a united front against problems facing the country.
Speaking at the national celebrations to mark 52 years of self- rule in Nairobi, Kenyatta assured Kenyans of the government’s commitment to the fight against institutional corruption, citing the recently commenced action to bring accountability to various allegations of corruption involving government officials.
“I call on every Kenyan, be you in the public sector or private sector, to reflect on the question of upholding the tenets of good governance,” Kenyatta said. “I urge everyone to commit to turning over a new leaf and expel the culture of bribery, extortion, kickbacks and other conspiracies and contrivances against the public interest.”
