President Uhuru Kenyatta had ordered all heads of procurement department to go for a compulsory leave as they await audit results.

Their juniors were to hold their position in an acting capacity. The next phase of audit is supposed to go to the heads of lower ranks and the results will be relied through their bosses.

Its however not clear how many have not passed the audit but those who have failed will be treated in line with the law.

The excise had initially been halted after the High Court ordered stoppage of the vetting process. Lately the President has been tough on graft promising necessary actions will be taken to those who will be caught.

Echoing his sentiments was ODM party leader Raila Odinga who called the President to tighten the fight against corruption.

Senior government officials have so far been prosecuted with promises of many others to face the law.

Former heads have not been spared either as irregular procurement’s dating back to when they were in charge have also been brought to light.
