NYS scandal: Why KoT is not impressed by Uhuru’s war on corruption
Kenyans online have expressed their dissatisfaction with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s “lack of seriousness” in fighting corruption.
The angry comments erupted moments after the suspects in the Sh468 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal were released on bail on Tuesday.
The suspects were released on a Sh5 million bond with a surety of Sh2 million.
High Court judge ordered the accused to deposit Sh1 million cash bail to secure their temporary freedom.
The 47 suspects will also be required to surrender their passports to the court and report weekly to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
Online, Kenyans expressed their anger and disappointment terming the ruling as the start of the collapse of the case.
If Uhuru kenyatta is serious in the fight against graft,he would not have allowed the NYS suspects to be granted bail.Anyway, Zambian mps came to Kenya to learn how to fight corruption

Meanwhile, as the rogue government is busy harassing business people while the public is applauding it, the NYS suspects have been granted bail!
I told you, IsaScam.
End of the game.

The small fish NYS suspects have been granted bail by High Court. The long road to perverting Justice has began.

NYS suspects granted bail.Are our institutions working properly? This is how wev'e been losing in this war! Where are the founders of lifestyle audit? Totally PR @UKenyatta @RailaOdinga @Miguna Miguna
Gutted that all NYS criminals have been released on bail, it marks end of 'fight against corruption' as we await NYS season 3. Uhuru should forget about legacy and lifestyle audits. #NYSscandal
