No Room For Pilferage And Wastage, President Kenyatta Warns Government Officials

On September 20, 2018 In Latest News

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told accounting officers in government that there was no room for pilferage and waste in his administration and those found wanting will pay dearly. Accounting officers are Principal Secretaries that head state departments; CEOs, Managing Directors, and Directors-General of state-owned enterprises (parastatals); and Vice Chancellors of public universities. “We want to categorically and clearly state that funny practices that lead to loss or wastage of public resources will not be allowed,” the President told the officers at a meeting at State House. “We will not entertain anybody messing up with government resources,” the President said. President Kenyatta repeated the uncompromisingly candid message he delivered to Cabinet Secretaries this month: any accounting officer who deemed their burden too heavy was free to depart from government. Prudent use of public funds is a key plank in delivering the President's Big Four plan that targets providing more roofs over the heads of Kenyans, ensuring more jobs by enhanced manufacturing, making sure hunger and starvation are stories confined to history, and ensuring everyone has access to healthcare.
