Let’s not rush to blame HealthGate on the Pres­i­dent

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

It is wrong to tar­nish the name of Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta in the re­cent Sh5.3 Mafya House scan­dal. First, the truth about this scam has not been clar­i­fied be­cause it is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Even if it is es­tab­lished that the Pres­i­dent’s rel­a­tives were in­volved in the scam, what has this have to do with Uhuru as the Pres­i­dent? He is not in charge of his rel­a­tives. It is them, in­di­vid­u­ally, who should be held ac­count­able In­stead of cas­ti­gat­ing him, we all need to help him in the war on graft if we re­ally want to win it. It calls for joint ef­forts to erad­i­cate cor­rup­tion.
