If you thought President Uhuru Kenyatta has given up on the graft war because some lawmakers claims that the war is targeting them you have to think again.
The head of states says the war is still on and if you are corrupt they will hunt you down.
Uhuru has warned officials who engage in corruption and claim that they are close allies.
The Head of State spoke at the Windhoek Country Club where he met Kenyans living in Namibia .
“If you are corrupt we will fight you. You can be my brother or my sister or my closest political ally, but if you are corrupt we will fight you,” he said.
” I won’t be clouded by ethnicity or status in my quest to leave behind a united nation and I will continue championing for Kenya’s unity.”
Uhuru assured Kenyans in the diaspora that the crackdown will continue and that every effort will be made to bring back integrity to the public service.
“Kenya has great potential but there is need to change practices that hinder the country from achieving progress,” he said.
He said corruption is a vice that all Kenyans must unite to fight if the country has to progress.
This comes after Deputy President William Ruto said he was being targeted in the war on corruption that he said has degenerated into impunity.
He said at a conference in Mombasa that there is an attempt to paint him in a bad light for political reasons.
He made the remark as he opened the First Inter-Professionals Summit.
Uhuru further directed relevant Government agencies to come up with mechanisms of ensuring that Kenyans in the diaspora are issued with the new generation passports in the countries of their residence.
He said he saw no reason why Kenyans living outside the country should incur huge financial costs to travel back home to acquire the new passports.
“Form a team that will go from country to country to register Kenyans in the diaspora. No Kenyan should be forced to spend money to travel to Kenya to get passports,” Uhuru directed the relevant government agencies.
