President Uhuru's fight on corruption intends to protect taxpayers’ interest
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s fight on corruption appears set on protecting taxpayers’ interest while ensuring public money is purposefully spent. That was the strong message issued today during his state of the nation address where the head of state even went as far as ruling out increases in taxes and rates during the next financial year. Corruption has been a thorny issue to tackle for successive governments but the president appears heel bent on weeding it out of the government. Instead government agencies will have to demonstrate the need to hike rates and taxes until such a time public funds are spent prudently. The latest corruption case to gain public attention involves the national youth service where 791.3 million shillings is said to have been misappropriated.
