Eighteen foreign envoys have commended Kenya’s renewed commitment to fight corruption and pledged to support the efforts.
They said they will stand with Kenya in its quest to deal with the scourge and called for fair trial process.
“We urge that Kenya’s judiciary take swift action, consistent with the rule of law, to ensure fair trials and justice.
“When there is evidence of corruption, those responsible should be prosecuted regardless of political party, social stature, or personal connections,” they said in a statement.
The envoys noted that corruption is not a preserve of certain countries alone but a widespread menace whose eradication depend on political will and strong coordination between relevant agencies.
They said prosecution of individuals or organizations found guilty should include forfeiture of the proceeds of their crimes.
