The sacking of former anti-corruption boss Patrick Lumumba has hampered the war against graft, the Transparency International has said.
Richard Maina, TI's programme officer, yesterday said Kenyans are uncertain on whether the war on corruption will be won because the government has failed to provide support.
He said the ranking of Kenya at position 139 out of 176 countries by the Global Corruption Perception Index 2012 is not surprising. According to the report, Kenya's poor ranking is an indication that the change brought in by the new constitution has had little effect on the fight against corruption.
Maina said the Judiciary is the only government organ that has shown interest in the fight against corruption. "The Judiciary has moved with speed to ensure zero tolerance on corruption," he said.
He challenged other institutions to ensure that Kenya is ranked the best country in the region through eradicating corruption. Maina was speaking at the Eldoret Municipal Grounds after meeting various leaders from Uasin Gishu.
