Punishment for Corruption Must be Enforced

Those involved in corrupt dealings should be punished and efforts be made to recover stolen resources. Speaking on Citizen TV on 21st May 2018 over the NYS Scandal, Transparency International Kenya Executive Director Samuel Kimeu said that it was unfortunate that the country is being looted in a way that has not seen before. He noted that it was now time for firm action to be taken against the culprits.

“I think individuals stepping aside is too little too late. We should have people being fired.”said Mr. Kimeu.

He added that there was no point of people stepping aside only to come back into positions of power.

Kenyans have expressed anger and frustration over new revelations of loss of money at the NYS. Some of the responses during the Citizen TV interview are highlighted below.
