5 ways Kenyans are fighting corruption

5 ways Kenyans are fighting corruption

Whether it’s on the radio, in schools or across rural counties, Transparency International Kenya is engaging citizens young and old in the fight against corruption. Here are some snapshots:

Anti-corruption lessons begin early in Kenya with our Integrity Clubs, which are run in primary and secondary schools. These clubs have resulted in students becoming more active citizens who help to promote good values in their communities.

We’re using colourful murals and graffiti to cover the walls of schools to put the spotlight on good governance in education. Poorly equipped schools as well as teacher and student absenteeism are some of the challenges. The artwork aims to inspire communities to actively improve the situation.

Our mobile anti-corruption legal advice clinics travel across the remote rural areas of the country and hold public forums to make villagers aware of corruption and its effects, as well as ways to fight it. In 12 months, we received 3,900 reports, a large number being land and public administration related complaints.

To ensure effective humanitarian aid, we run a service that helps the public report complaints or concerns about aid and service delivery. People can submit complaints online, through a toll-free SMS number or by visiting their nearest office. The initiative brings together numerous aid and service delivery institutions, including the County Government of Turkana, the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights, OXFAM and World Vision Kenya.

Transparency International Kenya's Executive Director Samuel Kimeu talking about corruption on the radio. Ninety per cent of Kenyans receive their news and information from radio making it a key way to engage people and raise awareness of their rights. We’ve reached an estimated 25 million people with our radio shows that cover a wide range of corruption related topics.

Political asylum for ex-presidents: an easy way to impunity?

This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration.

Two recent cases of two ex-presidents who have applied for political asylum to evade justice, and two countries who handled these requests in very different ways, highlight some of these abuses.
