Let Cord critics reveal their firms with state tenders
I have followed keenly the debate on alleged questionable spending of Sh5.2 billion in the Health ministry. Since the revelations contained in a leaked draft audit were reported by the Business Daily, opposition leaders ran with the story and linked President Uhuru Kenyatta’s kin to alleged loss of funds. They said he is not doing anything to curb corruption. I beg to differ. In March last year Uhuru cracked the whip, forcing 175 government officials, including his CSs, to step aside after they were named in the List of Shame presented to him by the EACC. Some of them were arraigned. Two years later, their cases are yet to be concluded. Should we blame the President for the delay? The judiciary is independent, so are the DPP and the EACC. The opposition is not interested in fighting graft. They have politicised this. If they are telling the truth, let them name their companies that have won government tenders.
