Third Way Alliance Party of Kenya has called for resignation of President Uhuru Kenyatta over failure to root out corruption in government.The party’s leader Dr. Ekuru Aukot argues that the hallmark of fighting corruption is a personal and political responsibility which the president lacks as chief manager of public resources.
The third way administration wants Kenyans to boycott paying taxes and hold demonstrations against continued looting of public coffers by those in office.
Ekuru says President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration is taking Kenyans for a ride by pointing fingers on independent bodies and failing to tackle corruption head on.
Ekuru says Uhuru should borrow a leaf from his East African counterparts on how to deal with corruption to save kenya from more theft of money meant for development.
Under his leadership Ekuru says he will provide a public gazzettement of persons involved in corruption as well as setting a jail term of not less than 25 years to those found culpable of propagating the vice.
The third way Alliance leader says the appointing authority fails to use intelligence reports on those set for appointments and appoint those whose image are tainted in order to blackmail them and continue looting public money.
According to the 2010 constitution, the president has no powers to fire corrupt officials. Ekuru who led experts in reviewing the constitution, however, says that the president being the appointing authority still, has a way to make those he appointed accountable.
Next week the party is set to hold demonstrations with civil society organizations to demand better leadership in the country.
