Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i has warned voters to be vigilant and wary of leaders they elect in this year’s August 9th elections.
He termed it as a critical moment for decisions made in addressing the challenge of terror financing and money laundering in the country.
He claimed that the 200 and 100 Shillings notes were being hoarded by politicians as they seek to influence voters’ decisions through bribery ahead of the August 9th elections.
This comes in the wake of banks decrying a shortage in the 200 and 100 notes.
He called on Kenyans to elect a team of leaders who would fighting these crimes in order to avert deaths and loss of property as experienced during past terror attacks in the country.
In a statement, Matiang’i said, “Either we elect a government that will not fight money laundering because that is its way of life and we will not achieve anything or elect a government that is against money laundering, with integrity and will join all of us in fighting these challenges."
