President Kenyatta outlines key milestones in
his renewed government anti-corruption drive

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta praised international help in his renewed war against corruption late Friday, emphasizing the "serial rape" of the country by corruption barons was one of the key drivers to protracted fights for the Presidency every four years during elections.

"We are doing our part as the executive branch.

"We have granted the departments and agencies of government involved in this fight against corruption the resources and powers they need to become successful," President Kenyatta told reporters during a televised interview.

The Kenyan President, who launched the fight against corruption as one of his Presidential legacy projects, emphasized the fight against rampant corruption was on the right path.

Kenyatta said part of his renewed war against corruption was linked to the need to end the vice, which was a big contributor to the prolonged disagreements every election cycle.

The Kenyan President said key among the drivers of the fight against corruption was the support Kenya was receiving globally.

Kenya has signed cooperation agreements with European countries on the asset recovery and the repatriation of assets stolen from the state coffers.

President Kenyatta said expectations were high from Kenyans who require a sustained war against corruption and results, which should include the conviction and jailing of corruption suspects.

Kenyatta said all independent arms of the government should act independently and the judiciary would also be facilitated to do its part in ensuring the fight against corruption is successful.

In addition, President Kenyatta said the key objective of the political negotiations with the opposition leader Raila Odinga was to work on longer term solutions to contested electoral outcomes and the exclusion of communities.

"We must have a system which looks at our political flaws at the national level.

"We are talking about things we can fix for generations to come," President Kenyatta said.
