PRESIDENT UHURU Kenyatta’s renewed anti-graft war it seems, has got a long way to go before it can yield substantial results that can discourage thieves of public funds.

This is after reports emerged that a recently elected governor from Central Kenya was overheard during a meeting at a popular joint with a top Jubilee official, asking him to urge President Uhuru Kenyatta to go slow on the fight against corruption.
The controversial governor who has become the talk of town, is said to have shocked his constituents by his level of investments in the short time he has been in office.
According to the Star, the governor has put up a multi-million-shillings skyscraper at the heart of a popular town in Central as well as buying several rental houses in Nairobi City.
The multimillion investments are, however, said to have been registered in the name of a chief officer in his government perhaps to avoid suspicion and scrutiny.
