It is on a lovely Thursday and corruption-linked politics in the country continues to take a new turn.
Days after disbanding the whole KEMSA board and kicking out one of his health PSs, President William Ruto has turned his ruthless guns on Kebs and KRA over the release of bad sugar into the Kenyan shelves.
On Wednesday evening, Ruto’s Chief of Staff, Felix Koskei, accused the 27 state employees of releasing condemned sugar unfit for consumption and ordered their immediate suspension.
This was after Kebs suggested that the 20,000 bags of sugar imported into the country in 2018 were unfit for human consumption and directed that it be converted into industrial ethanol.
The institutions whose officers have been suspended are Kebs, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), the National Police Service, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the Agriculture and Food Authority (AFA), and Port Health Services.
Do you think Ruto is serious about fighting corruption this time round? Will he succeed?
