United States of America has deployed a senior Prosecutor to Kenya following request by the state over the ongoing war against corruption, it has emerged.
For days now, DCI George Kinoti and DPP Noordin Haji along with a host of workers from the respective offices, have pitched tent in Washington DC.
Through Twitter account, DCI announced that the Prosecutor from US will be in Kenya with sole purpose of helping in the ongoing fight against corruption.
"United States Justice Department is set to attach a Senior US Prosecutor to strengthen the ongoing anticorruption efforts. This was revealed by the US Deputy Attorney General, Bruce Swartz, during meeting with Kenyan delegation led by DPP," read the tweet.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to weed out corrupt people from his government. Recently, he announced increased funding to DPP and DCI offices as a measure to succeed.
Before meeting the Deputy Attorney General Bruce Swartz, the Kenyan delegation had met with senior officials in the US department of Justice.
"Kenyan Delegation met with Head of Public Integrity Section at US Dpt of Justice, Ms. Annalou Tirol. Discussion centered on best practices in dealing with public corruption cases. She pledged continued support to the ongoing anticorruption efforts," read another tweet.
While Uhuru has intensified his fight against corruption, majority of Kenyans have often expressed disappointments with no major prosecutions done until now.
