The Federal Bureau of Investigations has hailed Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and his DCI counterpart George Kinoti over efforts to fight corruption in Kenya
Speaking when he met the two officials in Washington on Tuesday, FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich said the American agency will support efforts to curb the vice.
Early this month, US ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter said that Washington DC will support President Uhuru Kenyatta's renewed fight against corruption.
“It’s not about real money any more; it's about everything going and Kenya being on its death bed if this is not curbed. This is beyond theft or corruption.
“It is Kenyans stealing from their own coffers; stealing from oneself. As Kenyans we probably need to come up with a terminology which will capture that this is beyond theft and corruption,” he said.
In the past, DPP Noordin Haji has warned that he will not spare people linked to various graft scandals including senior government officials.
“If there is sufficient evidence then we will prosecute you,” said Haji in a past event.
FBI has promised to support sleuths in Kenya especially in solving serious economic crimes that are multinational in nature.
