Today our country is facing a moral and leadership crisis. Kenyans are victims of corrupt governance; we ask those who have been mentioned adversely in the maize and education fund scandals to do the appropriate thing for Kenya. Step aside! This is the only thing that will restore confidence and trust in the Kenyan government. While this investigation is still ongoing, our country cannot afford to remain engulfed in endless unfolding bickering and shift-blaming. Our government’s ability to deal on a daily basis with the fiscal and economic crises we currently face demands leadership and integrity right from the State House.
We also ask the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission to act expeditiously and bring the corrupt officials to justice. Kenyans are tired of being taken for granted. They are tired of footing bills for people who show their gratitude by vomiting on the hands that feed them. They are tired of riding in rollercoasters of embarrassing scandals time and again.
The dire fiscal situation in Kenya demands that we have leaders who can devote their full attention to serving the people of Kenya. With this clouds now over their heads, those officials clearly are encumbered in the performance of their official duties and should step aside immediately!
