President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned accounting officers in government against abetting corruption.
The Head of State says there is no room for pilferage and waste in his administration and those found guilty will pay dearly.
He says prudent use of public funds is a key plank in delivering his Big Four plan that targets providing more roofs over the heads of Kenyans, ensuring more jobs by enhanced manufacturing, making sure hunger and starvation are stories confined to history, and ensuring everyone has access to healthcare.
President Uhuru once again challenged accounting officers who think they shoulder a huge burden to quit government.
Accounting officers are Principal Secretaries that head state departments; CEOs, managing directors, and director-generals of state-owned enterprises and Vice Chancellors of public universities.
This even as senators criticised the governments appetite for external borrowing.
Senate Minority Leader Moses Wetangula says not all Kenyans are benefiting from government borrowing.
