Amani National Congress (ANC) party has hit out at leaders trying to scuttle the ongoing graft war by alleging their tribes or individuals were targeted socially, politically or economically.

The party national chairman, Kevin Lunani, speaking at Watamu area of Malindi on Saturday (April 13) told off leaders spreading propaganda on the war against graft describing as the enemies of this nation.

According to him leaders opposed to independent bodies fighting corruption should be arrested and questioned because they might be involved in the vice.

“We have seen top notch leaders moving around the country claiming that the DCI boss is working under the influence of somebody, which is not true! If you are found to be corrupt, carry your own cross,” he said.

The anti-graft war, according to the chairman, can only be won if the government is ready to fry the big fish involved in corruption directly or otherwise.

Saying his party was fully behind President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Lunani warned that unless the vice is stamped out it will be difficult to implement the big four agendas of the government.

“I want to reiterate ANC we will work with the President in the fight against corruption that is the cancer eating into our economy and as leaders we should come together to find a lasting solution,” he said.

The chairman called on those mentioned on graft related issues to step aside to allow thorough investigations to be carried out accompanied with lifestyle audit before they can be exonerated after being found not guilty.

He urged the Ethic and Anti-Corruption Commission to move with speed and investigate all those linked to corruption scandals whatever their positions or standing in society.

His sentiments comes in backdrop of corruption experiencing handles as leaders across the country especially those allied to Deputy President William Ruto are alleging that the fight is not genuine but targeting designated people.
