Effects of corruption should be included in school syllabus, Governor Mutua proposes

With the runaway corruption remaining a thorny issue in both the national and county governments, Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader and Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua has proposed the need to have the study on the effect of corruption included in the syllabus.

‘For us to be able to sustain the fight against corruption, we need to create a society that is morally averse to graft.’ Said Mutua.

“I propose that the effects of corruption be a lesson in our education curriculum from Standard one to doctorate level.” Added mutual.

Speaking in Mombasa where he met teachers from the Eastern region, Governor Mutua expressed his dissent to the sporadic increase in the embezzlement of public funds, saying the root course of the problem was definitely a noticeable loophole in the education system.

“Our students should be primed to reject and to vehemently fight graft. They should grow up hating and not admiring fruits of corruption. When this is done, our people will grow up and serve our nation as astute leaders, judges, officers and human beings” said Governor Mutua.
