What should Kenya do to enhance the fight against corruption? Join the discussion and have your say.
Corruption has been singled out as being the most perilous threat to devolution in Kenya. His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has frequently spoken out against the practice and led the Government (national and county) to initiate efforts and other strategies to eliminate the vice, which he has declared as a national security threat. During the recently concluded 6th Annual Devolution Conference held in Kirinyaga County in March 2019, the President re-emphasized his commitment to fighting corruption in all its forms. He also expressed confidence that all independent institutions mandated to facilitate the war against corruption had the requisite capacity to do so. On their part, county governments under the leadership of Excellency Governors have made efforts to stamp out the vice, which threatens to undermine achievement of the goals of devolution.
This week, CoG/Maarifa Centre is holding an online Community of Practice (CoP), to discuss the challenge of eradicating corruption in Kenya, and make proposals that can be included in current and future actions towards this goal. The 3-day online discussions are taking place on the Maarifa Platform (www.maarifa.cog.go.ke) between Tuesday 23 April and Thursday 25 April 2019. A summary of the discussions will be prepared and shared with participants thereafter, and used to contribute to the larger discourse at policy level.
CoG/Maarifa Centre invites you to sign up and contribute to the discussion. Once you sign into the portal, please follow the links to the Anti-Corruption CoP, and post your comments. Ensure that you log in throughout the day for the next three days to keep up with the debate and have your say.
