Friday March 29, 2019 - President Uhuru Kenyatta has issued a tough warning to politicians who are politicizing the ongoing war against graft.
Last week, Deputy President William Ruto led a group of politicians from Rift Valley in attacking the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, over how he is handling graft cases.
Ruto publicly said Kinoti is targeting the Kalenjin community in the ongoing purge against graft.
But speaking at State House on Friday, Uhuru said corruption must be dealt with whether we like it or not.
“You will hear that so and so is being targeted...we must deal with corruption and the fact is that whether we want to accept it or not it exists... why don't we fix it instead of politicking ..jameni ... ," Uhuru said.
An angry Uhuru said he does not want corruption to be used to victimise somebody but benefit the people of Kenya.
"Let us come together.... please let this be an agenda that we move away from in weddings and funerals... the answer is on us talking to one another," he said.
"We can compete in a civilised manner, recognising that after competition nobody is leaving Kenya. When we say we are reaching out, how do you expect me to say I am governing if I don't reach out to people?"
