- Graft in government is said to be at its peak since Jubilee Government clinched power in 2013

- President Uhuru has been speaking tough but the war on corruption has yielded little fruits since efforts are not sustained

- Citizens have been charged not to entertain corrupt politicians as a way of expunging graft

The current spate of fraud has made the Jubilee Administration top list of the most corrupt government in the country since independence. The Civil society has said.

Samwel Mohochi, the Executive Director of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) claimed corruption cases unmasked from 2013 to-date have by far surpassed those witnessed in the country since 1963.

This comes at a time when the country is battling massive corruption in the National Youth Service (NYS), National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) and Kenya Ports Authority which have since seen pilferage of billions of taxpayers money.

Samuel Kimeu, the Executive Director at Transparency International Kenya said few steps had been taken in a move to address the menace but much still needed to be done.

Kimeu lamented that the efforts were not concerted and also not sustained thus dealing a blow to the fight against graft.
