President Uhuru Kenyatta tells politicians to stop talking about the BBI report and focus on building the nation.
Governor Alfred Mutua has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to scrap ‘excessive bureaucracy’ in Government financial management systems in order to seal corruption loopholes and allow consistent cash flow in the country’s economy.
Dr. Mutua said although the President had put in place robust programs to stimulate national economic growth in all sectors, some red tape policies in the Government’s financial management systems were slowing down cash flow leading to the poor performance of the economy.
“Bureaucracy is slowing down cash flow in the national economy. For instance, you will find up to 35 stages in Government procurement systems which slow down payments and open loopholes of corruption,” Dr. Mutua told Uhuru at the launch of Habitant Heights affordable housing project in Lukenya, Machakos County.
