The United States Government has communicated questions over the adequacy of the battle against exemption in high positioning dimensions of its Kenyan partner.
A human rights report discharged on Wednesday by the US State Department uncovers that there still exists wild human rights mishandles and that there needs responsibility for criminal acts in the President Uhuru Kenyatta-drove government.
It further asserted that the exemption continued in spite of the president’s, as one with his representative William Ruto, endeavors to end the bad habit.
Broken down, the human rights abuses carried out at various levels of government in 2018 included unlawful and politically motivated killings, harsh and life-threatening prison conditions, forced disappearances and torture.
The reports also pointed out that the Independent Policing Oversight Authority investigated numerous cases of misconduct whose capacity had only been increasing over time.
“The Kenyan government took only limited and uneven steps to address cases of alleged unlawful killings by security force members,” read the report.
In corruption, the report revealed that the cases were still common but lauded the president’s efforts to tame the vice.
“President Kenyatta intensified his anti-corruption campaign launched in 2015, and the Inspector General of police continued his strong public stance against corruption among police officers,” continued the report.
The country’s Judiciary was also not saved from the wrath as the report found it quite inefficient.
This comes at a time when the country is fighting funds embezzlement including the alleged loss of Ksh21 Billion in the Arror and Kimwarer dam scandal.
Three Cabinet Secretaries (Henry Rotich of Treasury, Eugene Wamalwa of Devolution and Agriculture’s Mwangi Kiunjuri) have since been grilled over the matter.
