The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Char­tered ac­coun­tants should up­hold their in­tegrity and play a cen­tral role in help­ing fight cor­rup­tion in Kenya, the In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales has said. Ac­cord­ing to ICAEW, which has in­te­grated ethics into all sec­tions of the ACA qual­i­fi­ca­tion, the pub­lic, cus­tomers and clients ex­pect busi­nesses, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als to act with in­tegrity. “The fight against fraud begins at the train­ing stage. No one can call them­selves a char­tered ac­coun­tant un­less they can demon­strate that they act to the high­est eth­i­cal stan­dards at all times,” ICAEW di­rec­tor Mid­dle East, Africa, South Asia Michael Arm­strong said.
