Kenya Criticised Over Corruption

Anti-Corruption activist, John Githongo, says not enough is being done in the fight against corruption

Anti-Corruption activist, John Githongo, says not enough is being done in the fight against corruption despite commitments made by politicians under the new Kenyan constitution.

Githongo says that impunity is still prevalent in government and not solid action was being taken against individuals implicated in graft.

In the same vein, constitutional expert, Yash Pal Ghai, says that any individual implicated in graft should vacate office immediately to allow for investigations to take place.

"Unfortunately the promises have not been kept so far. People who should be in jail are still in the Cabinet. The government is now trying to withdraw from the International Criminal Court (ICC) and they do not really have the guts to face the due process," explains Ghai.
