NATIONAL ETHICS AND CORRUPTION SURVEY 2016 LAUNCHED

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission this month launched the National Ethics and Corruption Survey (NECS) 2016 at Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi. According to the survey, the Commission saved Kenyans more that Kshs 6.7 billion through assets recovery, disruptions and preservations in the 2016/2017 financial year.

It was officially launched by the Chief Guest, Dr. Marisella Ouma, representing the Office of the Attorney-General, and provides information on various aspects of governance both at the National and County levels. Its overall objective was to provide credible data that feed the country’s anti-corruption strategy.
Speaking during the launch, EACC Chair Rtd. Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, lauded the increased partnerships and co-operation with other countries through mutual legal assistance that had helped the country recover Kenyan money hidden in other jurisdictions. “Through international co-operation with United Kingdom, Kshs. 50 million was returned to the country and utilised to purchase ambulances, which are now assisting our fellow Kenyans who previously had no access to such facilities,” he noted.

The Chair extolled the efforts made through the establishment of an Anti-Corruption and Economics Crimes Division of the High Court, which he noted had helped expedite the conclusion of corruption cases.

In his remarks, the Commission’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Halakhe Waqo, highlighted some of the institutions that ranked top in corruption. They include, at the national level, the Ministry of Interior and Coordination, and the National Police Service, which were ranked as the most corrupt. At the county level, Muranga and Lamu were ranked as the most and least corrupt respectively. Mr. Waqo also noted the increased perception of corruption trends by the public as compared to the 2015 survey.

The CEO affirmed the Commission’s commitment in fighting the vice, adding that the surveys had helped it realign its strategies to fight graft. He stated some of the commissions achievements, that include the recovery of assets worth Kshs. 256,044,092, and challenged public officers to step up the fight against corruption and unethical conduct in the conduct of business. He further lauded the leaders who had signed and committed to the Leadership and Integrity Codes as a sign of good will in public service.
