Sunday June 9, 2019-The United Kingdom has sent special investigators into the country to help Kenyan authorities monitor attempts by suspects of corruption to change old notes by exchanging the soon to be out of circulation old currency with Sterling Pounds.
According to the Outgoing British High Commissioner Nic Hailey, the UK is keen on the war against graft and is closely monitoring persons who want to change Kenyan notes into sterling pounds.
Speaking at a commemorative event to mark Queen Elizabeth’s 93rd birthday at his official residence in Nairobi Thursday evening, Hailey vowed that politicians who have stashed billions of shillings in the UK and its jurisdictions would be brought to book.
“We are working hard. We know corruption is pushing back. Money that has been stolen and stacked in international accounts must be recovered and the culprits must be prosecuted,” he stated.
“The process is long and complicated. We are tracking bank accounts. The suspects are clever and can attempt to divert the money to other accounts but we shall get them. It is time some big thieves went to jail,” Hailey reiterated.
