Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has bashed claims of his involvement in the National Cereal and Produce Board (NCPB) corruption saga.
Speaking at a conference in Mombasa that brought together delegates and numerous heads of different Parastatals in Kenya, Kiunjuri strongly condemned the claims terming them as malicious since there is no evidence to back the story up.
The CS disapproved the rumours making rounds claiming some few individuals are motivated to tarnish his image despite him upholding high standard of professionalism and work ethics.
Kiunjuri further clarified that the accusations don’t hold any water as the office of the Director of Public Prosecution is still conducting thorough investigations before legal actions can be taken to perpetrators.
Earlier last month the CS was quoted saying that no public resources was lost, a statement that seems contradicting with the current saga that is unfolding.
Farmers, board members, stakeholders and leaders from the North Rift have been pushing the director of criminal investigations George Kinoti together with the director of public prosecution Noordin Haji to hasten the investigations so as to expose all those involved in the scandal and face the full force of law.
This comes at a time when President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to slay the corruption giant in every possible manner giving out stern warning to all those serving in the public offices that whoever gets himself/herself involved in swindling public funds will carry their own cross.
