Action on graft is long overdue, so President must now crack whip

The Jubilee administration has “taken away enough for the owner to realise”, as the saying goes in Chinua Achebe’s book, A Man of the People.

It is disgusting to keep talking about this menace of corruption, yet no action is taken to curb it.

The government took stern action against terrorism.

One wonders why the same zeal is not being applied to curb corruption, which poses as big a threat as terrorism.

Stern action must be taken against anyone who is implicated in corruption without any favouritism.

The President should sack the corrupt people in his government or face massive opposition in 2017.

The people of Kenya are tired of the misuse of public funds by leaders in government.

GREED MUST STOP

This philosophy of the rich getting richer while the poor get poorer must stop and leaders should devote their service to the interests of the country and the people.

For Jubilee to be confident of winning the next election, it must stop corruption.

For once, I agree with ODM leader Raila Odinga that President Kenyatta should not favour anybody and that any official implicated in corruption should step aside and pave the way for investigations.

Our country needs leaders who are devoted and loyal and not people who only think about filling their own pockets.

Politics is not all about money and corruption; it is about being a servant of the people and working for the development and growth for the country.

It is time to act. We are tired of this gimmick of talk.
