Kitui County leaders have pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to take a forbidding action against corrupt individuals who are responsible for the recent Ksh.8 Billion scandal in the National Youth Service (NYS).
Speaking during a prize giving ceremony at Kimangao Girl’s secondary school in Mwingi North Constituency in Kitui County, Mwingi North MP Eng. Paul Nzengu and Kitui Women Rep Dr. Irene Kasalu condemned the recent corrupt dealings in the NYS, saying that embezzlement of public funds should not be allowed to continue at the expense of Kenyans.
Mwingi North MP Eng. Paul Nzengu urged the president to now ensure that all those who are found culpable in the NYS scandal are severely punished, just as he had promised during the speech he delivered in the National Assembly in his state of the nation address.
The county MP Dr. Irene Kasalu on her side said that it’s now time for the nation to address the issue of corruption once and for all as Kenyans have continued to suffer abject poverty, when their public funds are still being looted mercilessly by rogue leaders.
Nyeri diocese Ach Bishop Antony Muheria who is also the managing bishop in Kitui and Machakos County has called upon leaders in the country to be guided by virtues and the fear of God in their undertakings, saying that corruption should be a shame in a religious nation like Kenya.
The catholic Bishop urged Kenyan leaders to shun corruption and lead the nation in a just manner, just as the catholic bishops have been calling for all the time.
Muheria spoke at Kiio Catholic Church in Mwingi West constituency in Kitui, where he was celebrating mass on Sunday.
