Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter during a thanks giving ceremony for Uasin Gishu Senator Isaac Melly held at Sergoit in the county on December 26, 2013. Keter has warned the Jubilee government that it will lose the next election if it fails to tackle corruption perpetrated by top officials.
The Jubilee government will lose the next election if it fails to tackle corruption perpetrated by top officials, a member of the coalition has warned.
Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter cited the rail tender controversy, saying President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto may only serve for one term if they do not fire the implicated officials.
Speaking at Lessos Primary school during a thanksgiving ceremony for last year’s KCPE candidates, Mr Keter repeated his claims that taxpayers will lose Sh400 billion in the rail project and said it should be stopped until investigations are complete.
“ Voters may reject the Jubilee government due to corruption. Kenyans are tired of high level corruption which the two leaders must address instead of being misled that Jubilee will rule for 20 years,” said the MP.
The MP also claimed there was skewed employment in the military which he said is dominated by officers from one community while qualified Kenyans from other counties are left out. “For the 10 years under former President Kibaki, several officers from some communities were retired and others started dominating the military.”
Mr Keter said he was ready to table evidence showing that some counties are allocated more slots than other parts of Kenya.
“ Some counties are allocated between 240 to 300 slot in the military while others like Nandi get 30. All 47 counties should be given equal opportunities,” he said.
