Rampant graft damages Kenya’s good reputation
Kenya for a long time has been considered an international commercial hub and a gateway to East Africa. Nairobi is a preferred conference destination in Africa going by the recent international conferences it has hosted. The capital is also host to several international organisations, including the headquarters of the United Nations Environmental Program and other United Nation Offices. Accordingly, Kenya has been viewed as a social, cultural and commercial center in the region. However, corruption has dented our reputation which has taken years to earn. The government must act swiftly and firmly to curb the rising cases of corruption to repair our image internationally. Those found culpable, irrespective of their position in society, must face the full force of the law. Kenyans should be proud of this great nation and therefore, get to any length to protect it.
