INTERFAITH SECTOR PARTNERS WITH EACC TO FIGHT GRAFT

February 16, 2017: Leaders from various faith-based institutions in Kenya held a meeting with the secretariat of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to strategize on how to collaborate in the fight against graft.

The leaders, drawn from the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK), Hindu Council of Kenya (HCK), Evangelical Alliance of Kenya (EAK) and Supreme Council of Muslims (SUPKEM), resolved to change the rhetoric in the country and support the Commission in all its undertakings to fight corruption.

During the meeting, held at Integrity Centre, Nairobi, the secretariat tabled a report citing the Commissions achievements such as the successful prosecution of a number of corruption cases. Applauding the Commission for its achievements, the religious leaders urged it to use that track record to change the negative public perception about the institution.

The leaders formed a task force of 12 representatives that will spearhead collaboration efforts, which will seek to mobilize public support for the Commission in the fight against corruption. They also vowed to sensitize Kenyans to the need to have peaceful elections and to elect leaders of integrity as a preventive measure in the fight against corruption.

In addition, they resolved to lobby the political leadership to strengthen legal policies, institutional instruments and the Commissions capacity to battle graft.

They challenged Kenyans to embrace the fight against corruption as an individual responsibility, and to debunk the notion that it was the sole obligation of the Commission. A further challenge was to the public to avoid politicizing the war on graft, and to engage in constructive criticism to help the Commission deal with corruption without fear and favour.
