What we should do to win war against corruption in Kenya
No doubt corruption has been talked about for many years. I was at the university when the IMF and World Bank suspended aid to Kenya due to corruption. Twenty years later, the same subject dominates the headlines The war on graft cannot be won if one, government positions keep going to the same individuals who have either previously been accused of graft or their family members. Second, we don’t tighten the laws that have been made to tackle corruption, given there have been a lot of technology changes. Third, corruption suspects remain innocent until proven guilty. If it remains so, there is no immediate retribution. These suspects move from one office to another to perpetuate the same malpractices. Fourth, the President doesn’t stamp his authority on the war on graft. Some of these appointments are indirect ways to raise funds for the incumbent’s next election campaign.
