CORRUPTION MUCH DEEPER AN ISSUE THAN IT APPEARS

06 Aug

institutionsbbbbbAccording to a report by a group of regional transparency organizations corruption within public institutions continues to plague the East Africa nations, Out of the three nations, Kenya ranks highest in its level of corruption, followed by Uganda. If public corruption continues unchecked, experts say that development in the countries could be significantly hindered as a result.
The report says police are the most corrupt institutions in each country. The Kenya police force ranks highest on the corruption index of any institution surveyed, while Tanzania police are listed as the second most corrupt institution . Seventy-four percent of Kenyans ranked the nation as “very corrupt” or “extremely corrupt,”
The high rates of public bribery are paired with a deep lack of faith in public reporting methods. Only six percent of Kenyans from whom bribes were solicited reported the incidence to authorities. More than 50 percent of those Kenyans who did not report bribes stated that their reason for not reporting the incident was due to a belief that no action would be taken. institution 22222

    We Kenyans have to change our ways. We are quick to
    acuse police and other institutions as if they are not
    run by our brothers and sisters. Lets say NO to corruption,
    starting from me and you.
