Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi has raised doubts on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s commitment and seriousness in the fight against corruption.

Mulyungi said President Uhuru seems to have lost the graft battle.

Addressing the press at Kalanga secondary school in Nguni ward on Saturday, the Wiper legislator argued that the President is talking too much and doing little on graft suspects.

He stated that the President has to decisively deal with government officials implicated in graft scandals if he is keen on leaving a commendable legacy.

“The President seems to have lost the battle on graft and this can be a bad thing for him, especially on his Big Four agenda and legacy,” Mulyungi said.

Mulyungi asked President Kenyatta to be tough and firm in the fight against corruption.

The Wiper legislator also asked the President to immediately sack Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Henry Rotich and others who have been adversely mentioned in the alleged Sh21 billion dams' scandal.

“It raises a lot of questions to why CSs who have been adversely mentioned in graft scandals are still in office,” he said.

Mulyungi said Kenyan's patience has run out and want to see corrupt suspects being arrested and taken to court.

Last week, CS Rotich was grilled by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) over the alleged Sh21 billion dams' scandal.

A section of leaders is piling pressure on President Uhuru to sack top government officials implicated in graft as investigations go on.
