“To those who know anybody who has stolen or misappropriated public funds, instead of shouting in funerals, fundraisers or conferences, they should submit their petitions to investigating institutions either in Karura or Valley Road…” ~ DP Ruto
Moreover the Deputy President highlighted the following as some of the major challenges facing Kenya and not a change in Constitution and structure of government.
Wastage, mismanagement and corruption undermine the optimal use of resources. The Constitution provides robust, independent institutions to deal with this danger to our development; EACC, DCI, DPP, Judiciary are well resourced to function effectively and efficiently.
He further added that 52% of revenue goes to salaries and wages. Less than 20% goes into development. Suggestions for the creation of other layers of government is reckless, pedestrian and outright thoughtless.
