Olekina noted that most Kenyan leaders will fail the integrity test if Chapter Six of the Constitution is followed to the letter and a new approach of dealing with the issue of corruption should be explored.
He stated that talking about corruption every other time is not helpful.
“We need to go back to chapter six of the constitution in terms of the integrity test, which a lot of them will fail. It’s now upon us to either go the Rwanda way or try to reconcile instead of talking about corruption on a daily basis.”
“It doesn’t matter whether we keep talking about it because it will never end,” the senator said.
According to him, politicians are more prone to engage in corruption due to greed of money and the power engaging in the vice will get them.
The Narok senator also pointed out that the reason the current government cannot be held accountable is because there is no opposition in Kenya.
“In the senate you cannot tell me there is an opposition or government, the way people vote is based on who they are aligned to; not on the political party,” Olekina said.
He added that it is a very unfortunate situation because this gets them to vote on their own interests rather than the interest of the people they represent in parliament.
