Blam­ing the state won’t help win war on cor­rup­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Just as Trans­port CS James Macharia said, it is true that gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials in­volved in cor­rup­tion should carry their own cross. There is no need to paint the en­tire gov­ern­ment in a bad light. The gov­ern­ment is work­ing hard to end cor­rup­tion and the mal­prac­tices of some few in­di­vid­u­als shouldn’t mean all of­fi­cers are cor­rupt. In­stead of peo­ple ap­pre­ci­at­ing these ef­forts, they are blam­ing the en­tire gov­ern­ment for cor­rup­tion ,yet it’s in­di­vid­u­als who should be held to ac­count. Blam­ing the gov­ern­ment will not win war on graft.
