EACC: Interior Ministry most corrupt

12 November 2013, 16:11

Nairobi - The Ministry of Interior is the most corrupt institution in the country.

This is according to findings of a survey by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), which reported majority of individuals polled during the survey confessed to have given bribe in exchange for services from the ministry.

According to the survey, 59.3 percent of the sample said they had bribed officials from the ministry.

The Lands ministry came second in the list of shame with 28.3 percent of individuals polled reporting they had paid bribes. It was followed closely by the health ministry with 21.3 percent.

The Ministry of Local Government came fourth with 19 percent while the Ministry of Immigration was fifth with 18 percent.

The National Survey on Corruption also indicated that bribery was the highest form of corruption in the entire country with Uasin, Gishu, Samburu, Embu, Meru  and Nyamira leading the list of the most corrupt Counties in that order.

The survey was conducted between late last year and March this year.

“We cannot fight corruption alone, we need the help of everybody,” said EACC Director, Matemu Mumo, during the release of the report.

Speaking at the event, the Attorney General Githu Muigai, said it would be hard to attain this country’s economic goals without eradicating corruption. He also called upon all public officers to spearhead the fight against corruption while pointing out a possibility of giving more powers to the EACC to prosecute corrupt culprits.
