​Corruption condemneds marginalized to alienation when seeking just​ice - MUHURI

A lobby group has said marginalised communities cannot easily access justice because of corruption. 
In a statement to mark World Day for International Justice on Tuesday, Muslim for Human Rights (Muhuri) said graft was eating away the conscience of the society and the rule of law was being violated. 
Muhuri executive director Hassan Abdille said Kenyans want just treatment.  
This year's celebration marks the 15th anniversary of the International Criminal Court.
"This remains the only permanent court for the prosecution of individuals accused of mass atrocities," Abdille said.
"In its own unprecedented way, the ICC has established that everyone regardless of their position in society can be held accountable for their actions when they violate international law and obliterate human heritage and civilian well being," MUHURI boss said.
Abdille said the Kenya should follow suit.
The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has called for prosecution of top managers of government ministries owing to graft.
