It has now emerged that the vigor and oomph with which President Uhuru Kenyatta is wielding the sword against the dragon that is corruption is all thanks to Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The Premier has since revealed that one of the pointers that informed the detente between him and Uhuru was that wanton, shameless theft of public funds sanitized by the moniker corruption mus forthwith be dealt with scathingly.
Sources say Uhuru personally called the Criminals Investigations boss George Kinoti and directed him to immediately arrest the NYS suspects who are still wallowing in cells.
His new lifestyle audit that has sent shivers down the spines of tanga tanga squad led by the hustler turned overnight billionaire DP William Ruto is another cue that Uhuru and his new found Deputy at large-read-Raila are all out to make Kenya a better Country.
Raila Odinga has now directed investigators from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to lead the war on graft in the country.
Mr Odinga said there was no point of giving the job to investigate graft suspects to special institutions like the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), when those involved in such malpractices were ‘simply thieves who should be investigated and arrested by the DCI and later prosecuted and jailed.’
“We do not want witch-hunt. We want proper investigations and prosecutions of those guilty of corruption. We want our people to earn a liv-ing and income through their sweat. We cannot glorify theft. Theft is now called corruption… Theft is theft and these people are just thieves,” said Mr Odinga when he visited the family of the late senator Ben Oluoch Okello at Sabaki, Machakos County.
The ODM chief stated that fighting corruption was among the nine points identified in the handshake memorandum of understanding be-tween him and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“A lot has been said but what remains is that we must slay the dragon eating into the fabric of our society,” he said adding that the March 9 handshake was working in the country and was ‘already causing jitters’.
