Speaking on Tuesday, President William Ruto noted that the official was corrupt to the court and that she would use crooked means to get away with the crime she committed.
“There was one lady in one of the Roads department, corrupt to the core, to the extent that she could not be transferred by anybody, even by the Minister, because if she was transferred she would go to court, buy the court process and make sure that she is returned, that is the kind of chronic that corruption has taken us,” said the President
The Head of State continued by asking the Transport CS to ensure that she no longer works with the government.
“I hope Kipchumba Murkomen, I hope that lady no longer works for the government of Kenya. We cannot have such. There are people who have made government offices their private property.” he said
