Djibouti Anti-Graft Agency Benchmarks at EACC
A delegation from the National Anti-Corruption Commission of Djibouti (NACCD) visited the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to learn the Commission’s anti-corruption strategies.
Led by the NACCD President, Ms. Fatouma Abdilahi, the delegation arrived in Kenya on 12th of February 2019 for a nine-day visit to pick up tips about corruption prevention measures and how to mainstream ethics and integrity in the public and private sectors.
The team held extensive discussions with its Kenyan hosts and even visited an Integrity Club at Kathiani High School in Machakos County. Addressing the delegation at the EACC offices in Nairobi, Commission Secretary/CEO Twalib Mbarak noted that because corruption keeps mutating, it was important to invest in preventive measures, which he described as a cheap approach but with a long term impact.
While acknowledging the solid measures that EACC had put in place to combat corruption, Ms. Fatouma said: “We are pleased to note a range of efforts to strengthen anti-corruption strategies in Kenya and it is our hope that what we have learnt will help NACCD in identifying priority areas in the fight against corruption in Djibouti.”
The delegation visited various government agencies like the Kenya Revenue Authority, Kenya International Convention Center (KICC) and the Agriculture and Food Authority (AFA) where it was taken through the process of establishing and sustaining Corruption Prevention Committee and Integrity Assurance Officers. The delegation also toured the Kenya Leadership and Integrity Forum at the National Integrity Academy.
