Mombasa, KENYA: Human rights organizations in Mombasa county have  called on the government to fire and freeze the assets belonging to government officers indicted in graft with immediate effect.

The human rights activists who gathered at the HAKI Africa offices in Mombasa on Sunday, urged the government to focus on fighting corruption instead of intimidating people who speak out against corruption.

The activists led by Hussein Khalid of HAKI Africa ,Boniface Mwangi  and Julius Ogongo of the CHRJ, called upon Kenyans to join the red movement every Thursday so as to show support for the fight against corruption.

Top activist Boniface Mwangi called on the president to resign so as to protect the dignity of the country, adding that he had failed to fight corruption.

“The president can honour his dignity by leaving office when he can, if he doesn’t we will make sure he does.”Mwangi said.

Mwangi further criticized the current parliament saying they had failed Kenyans since they had the power to impeach the president, but were doing nothing about it.

They further maintained that the red movement would go on until they succeed in fighting corruption.
