Kenya's military, particularly the defense forces, has recently been granted permission to manage some of the country's largest public-sector enterprises because they are thought to be competent and devoid of corruption when it comes to managing public resources.
The Kenya Meat Commission (KMC) and the county administration of Nairobi are two of the sectors under military rule.
DP Ruto's close ally, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, has spoken out against the military being employed to handle public sectors, and he believes there is a purpose for this, and it is absolutely not a good one.
He stated on Twitter that he sympathizes with the military since it is being exploited by some parts of the government to conduct procurement for a specific project whose conceptual and design models are unknown.
According to Cheruiyot, the military is being utilized to complete the projects in order to avoid a public audit process that would expose the corrupt deals.
He added that if the relevant bodies do not capture the criminals by now, it will be too late since they will no longer be in power.
