, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 26 – It’s evident that the shameful culture of corruption in Kenya continues to be a nerve inside and outside the country.

While addressing Kenyans living in Israel, President Uhuru Kenyatta could not run away from corruption as he described Kenyans as having perfected the culture of stealing.

Overview
  • The president's statement comes as corruption scandals touching on high profile Kenyans continue to hit the headlines.
  • President Kenyatta last year sacked five of his Cabinet Secretaries over alleged corruption in their ministries and ordered for investigations of over 145 top leaders in the country for alleged corruption.

“God has given us a beautiful country, it’s 20 times better than this country, but all we do is stealing – this one we have expertise,” he said to the amusement of the audience.

He regretted that despite having many opportunities, Kenyans concentrated more on political bickering and whining than development.

“These people are asking me, ‘why can’t you do what we do here in Kenya’ let me not lie to you, it’s because of bad politics. We whine about everything, we fight and disagree, we cannot agree on our projects,” he stated.

In his view, if Kenya stayed focused on issues and stop the empty bickering and whining, it could achieve its development agenda by capitalising on existing opportunities.

The latest is the National Youth Service saga which has resulted in a blame game over who benefited from the stolen funds.
