Corruption is a major problem in Kenya. Most of our leaders engage in corruption in one way or another. This has led to poor service delivery to citizens and lack of essentials in our our public institution. The current crop of leaders have been accused of engaging in corruption in the country.
Today, Ethics and Ant Corruption Commission has launched investigation into what is again a major scandal in Uasin Gishu county. According to reports, Members of county assembly of Uasin Gishu pocketed a whopping Ksh 6.8 million in a fake trip to Arusha Tanzania.
The ant graft agency will probe mobile money transaction and phone location data of the MCAs. "EACC to probe mobile money transaction, phone location data of Uasin Gishu MCAs accused of pocketing sh6.8m on fake benchmarking trip Arusha Trip," read the report.
Should EACC establish that MCAs picked money without going for a benchmarking trip then action should be taken to return taxpayers money.
