Wandera cited the reckless borrowing being done by the government in the name of Covid-19 as an accelerator of the corruption.
“The Kenyan economy is at crisis accelerated by Covid-19 and reckless borrowing. There is rise in price of commodities and a massive slide in the value of Kenyan shillings all these because of corruption and the mismanagement of funds,” said Wandera.
The Anglican bishops want the government to also solve the standoff between it and office of anti-corruption agency.
“We want all presidential aspirants to tell us what they do in matters of corruption as a matter of urgency. If the government is having difficulty in solving the issue, then we as the church are willing to provide experts of good will to gather and give idea on how to deal with corruption.”
Meanwhile the bishops on those vying for the presidential seat come 2022 to give a clear plan on what they will do in matters corruption.
“Kenyans are separated by these politicians, the Anti-corruption agency is not doing much on matters of corruption.”
