Narc Kenya has proposed that those found be involved in corruption in Kenya be handed the death penalty.

The proposal is similar to what happens in China; in March this year, a deputy mayor was sentenced to death after he was found guilty of taking £120 million (Ksh.15billion) in bribes, The Times reported.

On Friday, McLean Mukami (Coordinator at Narc headquarters ) and John Njiru (Embu County branch chairman) said it is only such punitive measures will deter corruption in Kenya.

Speaking in Embu when the party held a one-day workshop for it members, the two officials said the war on graft should not be politicised.
