According to a recent TI report, 45% of Kenyans claimed to have paid bribes to speed up access to basic services compared to 29% in 2007. The report said some parents paid as much as Sh20, 000 to secure admission for their children to private universities. Respondents also paid bribes to obtain employment, license or permit to avoid a brush aside with the law or some punitive measure. Among the government departments that top the corruption index include Ministries of Health, Lands and Immigration, Health, Provincial Administration, City Councils in Nairobi and Mombasa and hospitals.

Research showed that 90% of respondents who interacted with the police were asked for kick-backs while 84% bribed the Local Authority; 79% the Lands and Immigration ministries and 63% the Kenya Revenue Authority and Electoral Commission of Kenya.
