A Member of Meru County Assembly has lashed at politicians advocating for the suspension of the Big Four Agenda projects under the pretext that all efforts should be geared towards fighting corruption.
The Ntima West MCA, Paul Bagine said the Big Four Agenda projects are significant for the well being of all Kenyans hence they should continue being implemented even as the fight against corruption intensifies.
He made the remarks after reports that a section of politicians have been calling for discontinuation of the Big four agenda to allow an all out war against corruption.
Bagine warned politicians against trivializing the war on graft, saying those accusing the anti-graft agencies of attacking a certain community should watch their tongues.
“Many Kenyans are suffering because of corruption. Corruption benefits individuals and not communities as some politicians want to insinuate,” noted the MCA.
He commended the firmness by the DPP and DCI in the fight against the vice stressing. “We also want similar efforts extended to county governments so that wananchi can realize the benefits of devolution.”
