DPP Orders Prosecution of Former CS Michael Kamau, Kenyans Offer Different Solution

  • The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on Tuesday ordered criminal prosecution of former Transport Cabinet Secretary (CS) Michael Kamau and others over corruption.

    According to the DPP, there is sufficient evidence to warrant court action over the CS and his accomplices.

    However, Kenyans have offered a different solution indicating that criminal prosecution was not a good enough action in the war against corruption.

    On the contrary, Kenyans now want the government to adopt public execution of corrupt officials as is the case in some countries like China and North Korea.

    Public executions would be more of a deterrent.

    The government increasingly looks like it's just trying to manage crisis after crisis with no specific plan - not much will be achieved in 5 years

    Others, however, predicted the next course of development on the corruption case against the former CS.

    Tomorrow his clansmen will arise and say their own is being attacked and targeted... Then a press conference. Or he will get lawyers to go block his case at the courts.

    We've seen such "raids" before,(e.g waiguru raid) these are just PR stunts to hoodwink the public that the anti-graft guys are working. BTW who would keep incriminating dossier at their private homes knowing that they are on the @EACCKenya radar?
