President Kenyatta challenged to expel corrupt officials

Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to crack the whip on corrupt Cabinet Secretaries.

Sonko said it was in public domain that some Cabinet Secretaries are implicated in pilferage of public resources and asked the President to sack them.

The Nairobi governor said the intensified war on corruption that has seen several governors indicted and barred from office should be extended to the cabinet.

“Cabinet Secretaries are not above the law. We don’t want to see only governors being arrested but the same must be extended to the cabinet,” Sonko said.

He urged the president to move with speed and reorganize his cabinet by kicking out all corrupt Cabinet Secretaries to enhance service delivery.

Sonko proposed that the reorganization of the cabinet must include the Orange party to actualize the March 9, 2018 ‘handshake’ and cement Uhuru’s relationship with Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

“We are supporting the ‘handshake’ and to make it real we want to see ODM Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries in government,” he said.
