The president is an ambitious person and wants to protect the vast interests of his wider family(Ngengi Klan). While i wouldnt say that he is a corrupt person himself, he is either naive or afraid of initiating war on corruption. In other words, they are very many powerful corrupt people in this country that no one would dare upset especially if they decide to gang up against you with the support of stupid sheeple citizens. You can never try to protect dumb people, they will gang up with the enemy you are trying to protect them from and they will kill you. Ask Jesus. Jesus was your regular rebel leader telling the jews how much their leaders and the occupying Roman authority and ceasar were bad people. Look at what he got in return. Am an atheist though. There are countless other examples even in our modern kenya. The only way you can protect dumb people is when you are armed to the teeth and you are willing to crush any dissent either from the enemy or from the dumb sheeple. Egypt, Modern China, Russia, Rwanda, and Singapore style.
