DAILY POST: Many State officers in Kenya only know how to steal from public coffers – KINOTI says and vows to send them to KAMITI before he retires




Thursday December 20, 2018-Director of Criminal Investigations
(DCI), George Kinoti, has said State officers who are in senior positions in
the government are stealing public money like there is no tomorrow.

In an
interview with a local daily on Tuesday, Kinoti said that the vested interests of
State officers shielding themselves have impeded efforts to rid the country of
graft.
Kinoti
said a number of graft suspects had found refuge in the DCI and Ethics and Anti
Corruption Commission (EACC) by bribing officials during investigations.
“What we
found upon assuming office was mind-boggling. It was pure economic thuggery.
Some of the cases, among them very sensitive ones, have been with the EACC for
years,” he said.
Kinoti
vowed to go full blast and arrest all state officers who engage in corruption.
He said
he will start with CEOs and board members since these are positions where
billions of shillings are lost through graft every year.
The DCI
has been investigating multi-billion-shilling scandals at the Kenya Pipeline
Company, National Youth Service, Kenya Power, NHIF and the National Cereals and
Produce Board.
