Muslim clerics calls on govt to ensure all looted public property is returned


Mombasa, KENYA: The Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya CIPK have called on officials dealing with corruption cases to ensure that property acquired through illegal means be returned to the government immediately.

Addressing the media in Mombasa on Monday, the clerics congratulated the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti for ensuring that various people involved in corruption cases in the country have been arrested and prosecuted.

CIPK Organizing Secretary Sheikh Mohammed Khalifa has urged  Chief Justice David Maraga to ensure that justice is well administered in the corruption cases.

“Money that was stolen from the NYS, Kenya Power, Kenya Pipeline and others be returned and the Chief Justice should ensure that all culprits who stole from the government of Kenya are jailed,” said Sheikh Khalifa.

In addition, CIPK Treasurer Sheikh Hassan Omar has urged the government to give clarification on which company should the citizens consider when buying sugar.

He added the sugar scandal has really affected the business people as the police have been accused of confiscating all sugar from business persons whenever they conduct raids.

“I went into one of the big supermarkets in Mombasa and one of the business persons in the supermarket told me that they will stop selling sugar in their supermarket in order to avoid losses,” stated Omar.
