The government shall not relent on fighting graft -DP Ruto

BY DPPS/KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,4TH OCT 2018-Deputy President William Ruto  on Thursday reaffirmed the government’s commitment in  fighting corruption and delivering on its pledges to Kenyans .

Ruto on Thursday said the Jubilee administration is working under the
belief that it is serving “God rather than men,” hence it’s determined
to fulfill its promises.

“The commitment to deliver on our pledges is more out of the belief
that we are working for God rather than men. The bond of a leader is
their word; the measure is their delivery,” Ruto said.

He further stated that the Jubilee government’s development agenda is
anchored in biblical teachings of a faithful steward, further
urging leaders to serve humanity as if they were serving God.

“Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the
lord not for men since you know that you will receive a reward from the
lord,” Ruto said.

He was speaking during the official opening of the Global Leadership
Summit 2018 at Christ is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) in Nairobi
County.

The deputy president urged leaders to refrain from politicising the
war against corruption to avoid undermining ongoing investigations into
graft cases.

“The politicisation of investigations and prosecution by individuals
who are neither witnesses, investigators, prosecutors nor judges,
undermine the fight against corruption,” said  Ruto.

The deputy president said the government is working towards ensuring
transparency and openness in its operations to curb corruption.

“To secure Kenya’s transformation, we have invested time, people and
resources in enhancing the capabilities of our independent
constitutional institutions to combat wastage and mismanagement,” said
Ruto.

“Governments whose operations are open and transparent suffer less
from corruption. Opening up government contracting and procurement
services, where citizens can get details on project implementation is
critical to this end.”

The deputy president said claims that there are no proper security
measures, bad weather and corruption are some of the lame excuses why
nations fail.

“Leadership comes with authority and power that can change families,
communities and nations. It carries responsibility and accountability
without which leadership fails,” added the DP.
