President Uhuru Kenyatta (pictured) goes live on television tomorrow to address Kenyans on a raft of issues facing the country in his second State of the Nation address since his re-election in 2017.The long-awaited speech comes against the backdrop of mind-boggling cases of corruption, whose tracks lead right to top offices. At least five Cabinet secretaries (CSs) have been questioned in the ongoing graft probe, among them Henry Rotich, the bearer of the key to the National Treasury.The ever surging swirl of corruption has given Uhuru-Ruto government a bad name with the media revealing fresh scandals almost on a daily basis. Corruption appears to have not only been devolved but also liberalised.
Interestingly, some leaders read in the heightened war against corruption a political agenda directed at the Uhuru succession.In Parliament, MPs are plotting to tame the powers of the two key offices; Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Directorate of Public Prosecutions, that have taken the fight on graft a notch up.But despite the almost daily repudiation of corruption and declaration of war against the vice, Kenyans are impatient with the President as they await his next course of action to curb the brazen theft of public funds.
