Speaking during an interview on NTV on Tuesday, Kabogo said it is time for President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to put more effort on the war against graft.

The vocal politician noted that taxpayers are losing billions to corrupt individuals at the expense of development. 

He opined that for Kenya to develop, corruption needs to be eradicated completely.

Kabogo urged President Kenyatta and all the relevant government agencies to seal all the loopholes, and ensure taxpayer's money is not misappropriated.

"This country will never move forward if there is corruption," he said

Former Nyeri Woman Representative Priscilla Nyokabi reiterated Kabogo's point, adding that the nation has good structures, but the problem lies with the implementation of the same.

"One of the bad things about our country is implementation. We are so good at planning but not implementation," she said.
