Kenya: Uhuru to whistleblowers: Work with media, activists if EACC fails

President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked corruption whistleblowers to enlist the support of the media and the civil society in unearthing corruption cases.

President Kenyatta told them to take this route should the Ethics and Anti-Corruption fail to do its work.


The president issued the remarks at Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi on Wednesday, during Jamhuri Day celebrations, to mark 55 years of full independence from Britain.

While telling criminals that they will eventually be caught and punished, Mr Kenyatta told the public that it is time for them to stop watching from the sidelines.

As such, the president further told Kenyans, cases of corruption should be reported to local police.

“It is time for you to become active participants in this war. It is time for you to say enough is enough, be it to a policeman or a governor, a clerk or a Cabinet secretary, a judge or a politician,” he said.

“Nobody entrusted to hold public office has the right to demand a bribe from you or to squander what you and I have earned from our hard work.

I have shown you my unshakeable resolve on this matter, now I need you to show me yours.”
