Kitui East member of National Assembly Nimrod Mbai wants senior political class in the country to keep off using war on corruption for political millage ahead of 2022 political interests.
Speaking in his constituency, Mbai said some politicians were using war on graft to advance their political interests by directing strong malign influence to their worthy competitors.
He said war on corruption cannot be achieved through intimidation and witch-hunting.
“War on corruption should not be used for political experience , if you have water tight evidence that any one has stolen public money, present your evidence to police other than maligning them in public during political Barazas and funerals” Said Mbai.
The first time Jubilee law maker told former Premier Raila Odinga to concentrate on national building agenda which he promised Kenyans after the famous handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta other than initiating calculated disharmony in Jubilee house.
“ Raila odinga should keep off dragging Deputy president William Ruto’s name to corruption, if he (Raila) is sure of any corrupt event why can’t he present evidence to Director of Public Prosecution?, the war on corruption should not be personalized.” He added.
He said Raila was using a corruption tag against political competitor (Ruto) to win a public perception and achieve his 2022 presidential dream.
“Even the Bible says that whoever has no sin should cast a stone to the sinner, we should not rope public opinion to the war on corruption” he said.
