Uriri lawmaker Mark Nyamita had lauded the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji following the arrest of state officials linked to the Arror and Kimwarer dam scandals.
The group led by National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge were nabbed on Monday and arraigned in court on Tuesday to face charges revolving around corruption.
Speaking on Wednesday, the opposition lawmaker termed the same a very hold step, encouraging the DPP to ensure that those culpable are convicted and subjected to the law.
He said that the same goes to President Uhuru Kenyatta who is leading the war on graft, challenging the judiciary to handle the cases the quickest possible.
"DPP na Rais, this is a very bold step. Sasa ni korti wajikaze (this is a very bold step be the DPP and the president. Now let the courts employ the required effort)," he said on Radio Jambo's Gidi Na Ghost show Wednesday morning.
He now wants the DPP to go for other such cases which are pending, in a bid to bring uniformity and at the same time rid all government sectors of corrupt elements.
"Tunataka sasa kuona watu wanafungwa katika kesi zote sio hii ya jana tu (we want to see jail sentences in all such cases, not only this one)," he added, hours after Rotich and Thugge were released on bail.
