Friday September 20,2019 - Last month, President Uhuru Kenyatta, said no one will save corrupt state officers from arrest should they continue looting public resources.
Uhuru, who was speaking in Mombasa, said it is no longer business as usual as far as the graft purge is concerned.
Uhuru said agencies mandated in fighting corruption are on high alert and they will not spare anyone who engages in graft.
“Right now, there is no making calls saying you are in trouble and pleading for help, carry own cross,”
"The culture of calling for help is no more, it will be upon you to defend yourself. Ni noma, hizo simu zilizimwa (Things are thick. Those phones were switched off.)" Uhuru said.
As a result of huru’s tough warning, Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko's attempt to contact the Head of State over a corruption case he is facing hit a rocky path after Uhuru refused to pick his calls.
Our mole told us that the Governor has been making frantic efforts to meet Uhuru so that "the big man" can intervene.
Sonko, who is facing a Sh 357 million corruption case, has been missing from City Hall for two weeks with sources saying that he is hiding from DCI sleuths who can arrest him anytime.
In the case, Sonko is said to have received Sh 20 million in kickbacks.
