Ford Kenya leader Senator Moses Wetangula has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to translate the March ‘handshake’ with ODM leader Raila Odinga to hand cuffs.
He asked the head of state to sack officers engaging in corruption that has taken a toll in the country.
“Mr President sack all corrupt Cabinet Secretaries and state officers who misappropriate public resources. Translate the handshake to handcuffs,” said Mr Wetangula.
The legislator further urged the head of state to be more ruthless in the fight against corruption that has denied Kenyans the much needed services.
“A big share of your taxes meant for projects is stolen. We want more individuals mentioned in corrupt dealing
He stated that the President’s legacy and success of the government’s Big Four agenda solemnly depends on prudent use of public resources.
He said the amendments of the constitution is a move in the right direction that will ensure inclusivity and accountability prevails in the country.
The law maker was speaking during the burial ceremony of Joel Mandu, the son of Ford Kenya National Organising Secretary Christopher Mandu in Bwiri Ward, Busia County.
The event was attended by Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong, MPs Charles Gemose (Vihiga) and Catherine Wambilianga (Bungoma Women Representative), National Privatisation Committee chairperson Dr Paul Otuoma, Bungoma Deputy Governor Charles Ngome and host of Ford Kenya MCAs in Busia and Bungoma.
Dr Otuoma, who echoed Wetangula’s sentiments, said the fight against corruption should be realistic to achieve desired results.
