Kenya president says he isn’t shielding corruption suspects

The Central Organisation of Trade Unions (Cotu) has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to disband the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) for complacency in the fight against graft.

“I will soon start making a number of suggestions to you on how we can do this together with regard to fighting corruption without President Uhuru Kenyatta“, he concluded.

He further explained that it is only that time when he travelled to the ICC at the Hague that occasioned the existence of an acting President.

Whether I am in Togo, I am still President of the Republic of Kenya.

“Only once I have I left Presidency… and I signed a paper leaving my deputy to act as President”.

John Githongo whose father was a close friend of founding father Jomo Kenyatta, attended the same school with President Uhuru Kenyatta at the prestigious St Mary’s High School, Nairobi.

Sonko on Sunday evening presented himself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigation headquarters where he recorded a statement over his statements.

As of October, 873 people in East Africa’s biggest economy were facing corruption charges in court, including five former ministers, six principal secretaries, two senators, nine lawmakers, 16 senior county officials and 17 chief executive officers of state-owned companies, Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko said at the meeting.
