LET US FIGHT THIS INSIDIOUS PLAGUE -YOUR NO COUNTS.
“Everyone has a role to play, not only Governments, but also parliamentarians, businesses, civil society, the media and the average citizen. Corruption hurts us all, therefore fighting it is a shared responsibility”
Attitudes on corruption are changing. As recently as ten years ago, corruption was only whispered about. Today there are signs of growing intolerance toward corruption and more and more politicians and chief executives are being tried and convicted.
It goes without saying that corruption undermines democratic institutions, slows economic development and contributes to governmental instability. Corruption attacks the foundation of democratic institutions by distorting electoral processes, perverting the rule of law and creating bureaucratic quagmires whose only reason for existing is the soliciting of bribes. Economic development is stunted because foreign direct investment is discouraged and small businesses within the country often find it impossible to overcome the “start-up costs” required because of corruption.
Kenya being among the most corrupt countries in Africa, let us not feel sorry but be part of the team that is trying to fight this vice. What is your story? Fighting corruption is a global concern because corruption is found in both rich and poor countries, and evidence shows that it hurts poor people disproportionately. No country, region or community is immune.
