Govt admits failure in anti graft war

NAIROBI, July 16 – The government has conceded failure in meeting its targets to fight corruption and change public perception on the vice.

Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Martha Karua said the government has failed to act on recommendations by various commissions of Inquiry to stop graft.

Speaking at the third National Integrity Forum in Nairobi, Karua confessed that government inaction had encouraged the culture of impunity and undermined the war on Corruption.

Also present, Prime Minister Raila Odinga heaped blame on bureaucratic judicial processes which he claimed have frustrated the work of the Kenya Anti Corruption Commission.

Odinga urged former Ethics and Governance Permanent Secretary John Githongo who is on self exile in Britain to return to the country.

He said the government would guarantee security for Githongo who quit his post in 2005 after exposing the Anglo-Leasing scandal.

Karua said Githongo’s life was not in danger and he should heed Odinga’s call and return home.
