KENYA: “STATE CAPTURED” BY SYSTEMIC FORCES OF CORRUPTION WITH THEFT OF PUBLIC RESOURCES

The Daily Nation on 23rd May referred to a “damning” report from NPO, the Africa Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG) in Nairobi, which says elites and private interests are calling the shots.  It says the State has succeeded in the art of speaking out against corruption while endorsing it behind the scenes.  The report cites a number of scandals whose investigations have over the years became a routine circus because of collusion, fightbacks and endless legal manoeuvres.  It refers to the fear that the current President’s anti-corruption drive is losing momentum, with some MPs starting the push for the sacking of top government officials implicated in graft.
