South Nyanza Bishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) John Orina has called on the government to disband the National Youth Service (NYS) over corruption scandals.
Speaking to The Daily Clock at his ACK office in Kisii on Thursday, Orina said the government took a tremendous step of arresting and prosecuting the 8B NYS saga suspects.
“For youths to empower themselves, this should be restructured and build tertiary institutions for our youths to gain knowledge and skills.This is the time we should unite to promote peace and develop our country,” He stated.
Orina said corruption is a question of the heart. The public is committed to see the country flourish and not destroyed by corrupt individuals in government.
“We as Christians condemn it. We need to focus on true development in our country, not to be pulled down by corrupt individuals,” he added.
He has appealed to the government to review tax rates for common Mwananchi to enjoy.
“Most Kenyans are living vulnerable life. We want the government to do something for them to enjoy tax rates,” Bishop noted.
According to Bishop, NYS,Tax collection and service delivery from Kenya Power and Lighting Company have been the major issues contributing to the rise of corruption in the country.
He urged Christians to promote peace, unity and pray for this country to restore sanity.
