BY KORIR JUMA/DPPS,25TH MAY 2018-Deputy President William Ruto wants Agriculture Ministry to clearly explain how cash allocated to the National cereals and produce Board was stolen through dubious ways by brokers..
“How can one supply more than 200,000 bags to the National Cereals Board yet he or she has no land? Such a question needs an honest answer,” the DP posed.
The DP who was speaking in Kisii County on Friday during the graduation ceremony of St Paul’s Teachers Training College Nyabururu warned that tough action will be taken against those implicated in both the NCPB and National Youth Service (NYS) scandals.
“Those identified to have participated in the loss of billions of shillings in these scandals should be punished. No one should be spared,” DP Ruto.
He reiterated that public servants have a duty to protect resources entrusted to them.
Mr. Ruto further urged the Director of Public Prosecution and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to act swiftly and bring the suspects to book.
“Stiff penalties must be meted out to stop such acts. We cannot be losing money to corrupt individuals at the expense of the development of the country,” he added.
It has since been brought to the public knowledge that Ksh.1.9billion got lost at the NCPB.Already another multi-billion corruption scandal is being investigated at NYS where Ksh9billion has been misappropriated in the latest scandal.
