Thursday August 1, 2019 - Rarieda lawmaker, Otiende Amollo, has alerted Kenyans to brace themselves for a more heated war on graft in the coming days.
The remarks come only days after the arraignment of former Treasury Cabinet Secretary, Henry Rotich, his Principal Secretary, Kamau Thugge, and Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, over graft charges.
Speaking on KTN’s Point Blank, Amollo termed this as a tip of what should be expected in the coming days, predicting more arrests in the near future.
He termed the arrest and detention of the three, over the loss of billions in the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal and in Kiambu County, "just an indication of what to expect".
"From the grapevine, CS Henry Rotich’s arrest was an indication of what to expect.”
“More arrests are on the way," he said.
Amollo proceeded to propose an all-out war on the menace, noting that the vice has slowly but steadily grown into a pandemic which must be fought from all corners.
"Corruption has become endemic, fighting corruption from all angles is a good thing if it can help reduce corruption," he added.
Rotich, Thugge and Waititu have since vacated office as per the law, and are expected to remain outside until their case is heard and determined by the court.
