The buses in question were hired by KAA to transport passengers within the airport but the president said that the cost was outrageous.
“I find it impossible to believe that you have buses you pay KSh11 million a month. Why don’t you come I give you National Youth Service buses at KSh100, 000,” said Kenyatta.
Speaking while commissioning the passenger terminal 2 at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Kenyatta directed KAA chairman David Kimaiyo to ensure that people responsible for the scandal’ are brought to book.
The return of grand corruption has been the biggest headache for the Jubilee administration two years after Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto took the reins of leadership.
The president has been battling to eradicate corruption from within the public service, having released the famous ‘list of shame’ in which he asked all public officials named in any corruption scandal to step aside and allow time for investigations.
Currently, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission-a key institution in tackling graft- does not have commissioners following the resignation of Mumo Matemu the then chairman and Irene Keino,vice chairperson in May this year.
The two had been suspended to give room for a tribunal to investigate their conduct but both opted to resign before the tribunal-formed by Kenyatta- concluded its mandate.
