Nairobi government fight on corruption moves a notch higher, says EACC/FILE

, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 19 – The Nairobi City County government has really tried in fighting corruption, an official from Ethics and Anti-Corruption has said.

According to Erick Munyao from EACC, graft complaints against Nairobi County have gone down since Governor Mike Sonko came into office last year August.

“Graft complaints in Nairobi have really gone down compared to the previous regime,” he said.

He was speaking during a media workshop organized by Nairobi County government at English Point Hotel in Mombasa.

The Sonko-led administration has sealed all the corruption loopholes at the City Hall, enabling the Nairobi county government to collect over Sh1 billion monthly.

Munyao said to address corruption fully, Kenyans must change and support government agencies that fight the vice.

“Creating a society which is ethical will never hurt anyone. During our recent survey 61.7 Kenyans watched corruption and did nothing, this should not be the case,” he said.

Sonko has been consistent in the fight against graft saying he will never entertain corruption.

“Even if my close family members or friends are involved in corruption, they will face the full force of the law,” said Sonko.
