RAILA ODINGA says the war on corruption must be messy as he admits he too has lost friends just like UHURU said! Maybe KIDERO

Monday August 13, 2018 - NASA Leader, Raila Odinga, has praised the ongoing war on corruption being led by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji and the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, and called on Kenyans to support it. 

Raila commended Uhuru’s Government’s crackdown on corruption and the culture of impunity saying it was unthinkable at the beginning of the year - until the Building Bridges Initiative was born.

“All Government departments, citizens and friends of Kenya must stand to be counted in the war against corruption,” said Raila in a statement.

“The March 9th handshake gave birth to a new Kenya with a very clear agenda on how to address our age-old problems.”

“Thanks to the bipartisan support, public land whose recovery stalled in 2003 has kicked off, with the grabbers denied the ethnic and political party sanctuaries they usually hide in,” he added.

At the same time, Raila noted that the current political atmosphere had enabled Kenya to look at its problems without ethnic biases.

 “Attempts by suspects to appeal to their ethnic bases have generated near-zero support.”

“As the crackdown continues, as it must, we need to see similar energy and speed directed at the recovery of assets that were acquired from the proceeds of corruption and impunity,” he said.

The NASA leader admitted that he too has lost friends due to the war on corruption just like President Uhuru Kenyatta.
