MP faults Cabinet over Integrity Bill changes
Nakuru town MP Lee Kinyanjui has called on the executive to ensure the Integrity Bill lives up to Kenyan's expectations. The MP has further accuse the Cabinet of "betraying Kenyans by interfering with the bill to safe guard their selfish interests." The assistant minister was addressing hundreds of youth at a civic education exercise in Subukia constituency.
The MP said the bill is supposed to "actualise chapter six of the Constitution", and called on the MPs to reject the amended bill. Kinyanjui noted that cabinet could not be trusted to handle such grave concerns which directly touched on the executive and called on MPs to reject the bill in its current state.
"It is time for all Kenyans and leaders of goodwill to come out and protect this law as even in parliament there are dozens of corrupt leaders who would rather mutilate this bill than have it passed in its original form," Kinyanjui said adding that many of the key players were intent on safeguarding their interests and candidatures which would fall short of the integrity test.
