Justin Muturi, a Democratic Party presidential candidate, has stated that corruption convictions should face the firing squad.
“These (corrupt officials) should be escorted to a park and the firing squad summoned,” Muturi remarked.
Muturi, who is also the Speaker of the National Assembly, has stated that if elected, his government will prioritize the battle against corruption.
Muturi is perplexed as to why corruption cases have taken so long to resolve, despite the fact that graft lies at the root of the country’s economic woes.
The Constitution stipulates that a presidential election challenge must be heard within 14 days, yet some of the most serious corruption cases never reach a conclusion, according to Muturi.
that if elected he would make corruption easy to prosecute by using the Auditor General’s report as a reference point.
Muturi said there was a high cost to development due to corruption.
He also recommended that important public dockets like Health should be fully devolved to the counties to make them more efficient in offering grassroots services.
The Speaker also called on fellow politicians to desist from hurling insults at one another while pretending to preach unity.
“You cannot purport to stand for unity yet every time you stand you call others thieves and other bad words,”Muturi said.
He was speaking at Isinya, Kajiado County, in the home of Democratic Party parliamentary aspirant Moses Parantai, where he also met over 1,000 DP delegates.
He said he stands for accountability among leaders.
