New Kenyan site to fight corruption
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta says he will set up a website to boost the war against corruption in the country.
The President says the website will enable the public to report Government officials who engage in graft so that appropriate action can be taken against them.
“We have reached a point where if you want to keep your Government job, you must be satisfied with the salary you are paid. If you think it is not enough, you are free to quit and look for other forms of employment,” the President said.
He was speaking at the official launch of a Government procurement initiative for women, youth and persons with disability at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre.
He warned the Public Procurement Directorate to seal all loopholes that would allow corruption to compromise the procurement process, saying no laxity on their part would be tolerated.
The President said he would closely monitor the allocation of the 30% Government procurement to see exactly how many women, youths and persons with disability benefit.
