Auditor-General Wants Kenyan Presidential Powers Curtailed

Auditor-General Edward Ouko is calling for amendments to the constitution to create a head of state that is separate from the head of government, that will work independent of each other. "Under the current system, the auditor is up against the president and his ministers. If the president is protective of his ministers, then the audit is watered down," according to Ouko.
