Written by Dave Opiyo on December 10, 2021
As a way of celebrating International Anti-Corruption day, Manyatta and Kondele residents in Kisumu together with other NGOs such as Lakeshore For Community Transformation (LACOT), Tembea Kenya and others came out to condemn corruption cases that have been on the rise in the country, moreso in Kisumu county.
Sam Owino Onditi, a Manyatta resident and also a human rights activist disregarded the job that was done on the road from Butter Toast to Magadi, a project that consumed Ksh. 99 million but it wasn’t made to the right standard and currently has many potholes. He added that tax payers’ money must be used in the right way.
On his side, the Director general at LACOT Peter Kochiel said that they have been teaching locals on how taxes should be used, as he said that such trainings are meant to ensure that they have a deeper understanding on how to fight corruption.
He went ahead to say that what they do is not targeting anyone and nobody should try politicking themsince they just want the best for the citizens concerning the developments brought by the National and county governments.
