The PC was accompanied by his Deputies and all the 9 DCs in Nairobi.
Amongst other things that were discussed are the forthcoming Anti Corruption Walk that will be held in on the 22nd October 2010.
The PC said that the Provincial Administration are well placed to join in the war against corruption and that they are inviting the KACC team to come up with a workshop that will re orient the Provincial Administration to play a better role in the fight. He confirmed that they will support the walk and all the activities preceding the walk as a team. He then nominated Ms Mercy Gatobu- Deputy PC in charge of Anti Corruption at his office to join the Organizing Team.
PC Nairobi sharing with Prof PLO Lumumba his Performance Contract where the fight against corruption tops his target requirements. Odhiambo T Oketch and Deputy PC Ms Maercy Gatobu looks on.
Odhiambo T Oketch assured the Director KACC, the PC and all the officers present that at CCNSET, we are staying with the issues and that we will play our part in the mobilization of this process. He assured the team that all is running well towards the big day and all the necessary players are being reached and mobilized. Odhiambo is the Co-Chair to the Organizing Team for the event. The Chair is Prof Jane Onsongo.
Already, approaches have been made to willing partners who have accepted to be part of this process and we will be giving details of the same soon.
Prof Lumumba once again called on all Kenyans to join in the war on graft. He gave us a brief history of how things used to be when he was in school; how essential services were readily available and compared that time to now. He said the time to reclaim was now. Let us not let corruption eat into our body fabric and become cancerous.
He invited us to all join in the campaign and was full of praise to the CCNSET Team involvement.
Similar sentiments were expressed from Dr Mutunyi, Dr Akidiva, Mr Kinuthia Wamwangi, Mr. Chris Kinyua, Mr. Mark Korir and DC Starehe who talked on behalf of his colleagues.
We at CCNSET are proud of our association with the City Council of Nairobi, Kenya Anti Corruption Commission, The Provincial Administration Nairobi, the Kenya Police Force and all the Strategic Partners that we are working with to promote positive engagement. Besides evaluation processes, there is a lot that the Stakeholders can work in partnership with the government bodies and this is the proactive approach we have taken at CCNSET.
We want to be part of the solution to our problems of 47 years. We do not want to be part of the problem into the 48th year of our independence.
It is our belief that we can achieve a lot as a country if we chose to positively engage with the government institutions. Instead of making noise about the 5% poor score, we applaud the 95% score and then reason out the 5%.
As CCNSET, we have already put in place a monthly clean-up campaign in Nairobi dubbed Clean Up Nairobi Initiative- CUNI and this will be held every 3rd Saturday of the month all across Nairobi. I am happy to report that the Provincial Administration have given there assurance of support and partnership.
We are inviting all Kenyans to join us on this day as we shall be making a big case against corruption as we appreciate and demand service delivery from all government agencies.
We will be posting more on this initiative in due course.
Peace and blessings
