NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 31 – Industrialists have joined in the list of the leaders lauding President Uhuru Kenyatta’s renewed purge against corruption in government.

Billionaire Chris Kirubi said on Tuesday that the move to fight corruption will take the nation to another level.

He urged the private sector to also join in and support the president in his fight against graft.

“I would like to commend president Uhuru Kenyatta for his bold step in fighting corruption. If it were not for corruption we would have been very far as a country; it’s a step in the right direction, “ Kirubi said during the Commissioning of the Keroche Breweries new beer facility in Naivasha.

Speaking at the same event Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Kiprono Kittony also lauded the president’s move saying it’s a vice that needs to be dealt with.

“I am also going to introduce ethical code of practice to the members of our chamber in a bid to eliminate corruption, “he added.

Also of the same view was Kenya Private Sector Alliance Chairman Vimal Shah who said that corruption is a great hindrance to investments.

Others commending the president for his move include The National Anti- Corruption Campaign Steering Committee (NACCSC) whose Chairman Archbishop Eliud Wabukala described the directive to all public and state officers implicated in the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission corruption list to step aside as an unprecedented move in Kenya’s history of the war against corruption.
