While speaking to Sunday Nation, Suba North lawmaker Millie Odhiambo has faulted the president as glorifying corruption in his appointments. A lawyer by profession, she reported that the country losses a collosal amount of money which could be used in rolling out development project's. On corruption, she says that by the president appointing people who have active cases in court, it means he is glorifying graft.
"The president is taking us backward on governance especially when appointing people with questionable integrity." Millie said. She also advised that the president needs to seal loopholed of corruption instead of slowing down on capital -intensive development projects. She adds that the problem is majorly on the leakages and not in the Investment.
The President however had in an earlier interview came to the defense of the accused saying that Kenyan's needed to understand that the criminal justice system was mobilised by the previous administration to help achieve political ends.
