Former Chief Justice David Maraga has slammed the Presidential aspirants in the face of the looming 2022 general elections saying they have not rolled out clear plans on what they will do to end corruption should they be elected to take power.
Maraga stated that Kenya is a rich country that can run without depending or taking loans from developed countries, adding that should corruption be nailed, Kenya will be the best and will develop so fast.
The Former CJ dared political leaders aspiring to be Presidents to inform Kenyans on what they will do concerning corruptions and with which, they will be held accountable as soon as they take power, pulling down normalized talks that fade into complete oblivion.
According to Maraga the economy of Kenya is being killed by a few people who are corrupt, and no law is being taken against them, leading to the current heavy debt Kenya has to repay.
“The way I look at those aspiring to be our Presidents, if someone can come out with a plan to end corruption. You don’t need to do anything else, the money needed to pay the debts is not much, the money we are losing daily can pay that debt,”
“If we abide by the law, every person should be held accountable and corruption will end. There will be no need to borrow money from outside and we shall carry out our normal operations,” said Maraga.
The Former CJ might have hinted out on what President Uhuru Kenyatta should do in order to reduce the debt Kenya has before his term comes to an end in the next polls
Earlier, Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga had claimed that the first thing he will when he gets into power will be jailing all corrupt leaders, a remark that backfired against him as a way he was to use in order to remain in power.
On his end, Deputy President William Ruto feels, equity will be arrived at in the looming 2022 government, adding that the poor will be provided with opportunities so that they can also be felt in the society through his bottom up ideology.
