Top officials working for Kenya’s government must undergo a lie detector test as part of a corruption crackdown, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.
Mr Kenyatta said the test, which would determine employee “integrity”, was just one part of a raft of planned measures to deal with the problem.
He was speaking after it was revealed 8bn Kenyan shillings (£59m; $78m) had gone missing from a government agency.
Some 40 civil servants are facing charges over the alleged theft.
The corruption scandal, which was brought to light by suppliers who had not been paid, saw funds were allegedly stolen via the National Youth Service (NYS) through fake invoices and multiple payments.
The investigation into the NYS – a key part of Mr Kenyatta’s plan to address youth unemployment – is seen as a blow to the president’s pledge to stamp out corruption, made when first elected in 2013.
