Moi: War on graft is for the country

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has urged all Kenyans to join the fight against corruption.

Speaking at African Inland Church in Eldama Ravine where he attended a Sunday service, Gideon told Kenyan, whether in government or not, to defend the country against corrupt individuals.

Economic growth

“It’s time Kenyans rise and say no to corruption and corrupt individuals. The war against corruption belongs to us all,” said Gideon.

He also asked leaders to unite against the dragon of corruption that has over the years paralysed the country’s economic growth.

The Senator, who is also the Kanu national chairperson, warned people against supporting of corrupt leaders, pointing out that they steal not for them, but for their own selfish gains.

The stolen money, he noted, will not be used to improve the lives of Kenyans living in abject poverty.

“It is even worse that those stealing, steal from people who entrusted them with the funds. You have been made a custodian of the funds and it is very wrong for you steal from the same,” he said.

He said Kenyans should pressurize the Government to recover the billions lost through corruption.

Further, he said, the war on corruption should not be seen as targeting certain individuals or any community and that it should not create divisions among leaders and Kenyans.

He urged Kenyans to support President Uhuru Kenyatta's efforts to rid the country of corruption.

He also lauded the efforts by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Director of Public Prosecutions (DCI) to bring to justice those involved in corruption.

Dam scandals

He urged the DCI to thoroughly investigate the dam scandals and ensure the culprits are brought to book.

Any Kenyan with information that can lead to the recovery of the Sh21 billion alleged to have been lost in the scandals should forward it to the relevant authorities.

The State, he said, should move with speed and recover all proceeds of crime.
