Leaders from the Abagusii community have expressed concern over the slow pace at which the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is handling corruption cases in the country with branches spread across the country doing absolutely nothing in terms of fighting corruption.
Led by Rachael Otundo, they said corruption cases appear to be handled at the national level targeting the big fish while the small fish who are the majority are left to enjoy their freedom which she said is disastrous.
Speaking at her Kisii office, Otundo who is eyeing the Kisii county gubernatorial seat said that it would appear that there are some sacred cows that might not be touched in the war against corruption in the country and singled out the rot at the Kisii lands registry and mismanagement of resources by the Kisii county government.
She pointed out that the ministry of Lands had promised to remove the Kisii lands registrar Steve Mokaya almost a year ago when the EACC raided the offices and took away files but to date, the officer in question is still serving at the station.
She accused the Kisii county government of lying to locals that they were to construct an avocado factory but equipment has been abandoned to rust at the site while residents have not been prepared to plant the crop.
