EACC has today launched the National Ethics and Corruption Survey 2018. The survey establishes experience-based corruption indices as it examines the manifestations of petty and administrative corruption at the interface between public officers and citizens. It was conducted from November 16 to December 19 last year and covered all the 47 counties with 5,942 household respondents and 10 key informants.

Respondents who took part in the survey cited corruption as the top challenge facing Kenya. Unemployment, poverty/famine high cost of living, bad infrastructure, unfavorable economic conditions, and insecurity were also cited

In the 2018 survey, the EACC survey ranked Registrar of Persons as the most corrupt institution (19.9%) followed by public hospitals (19.7%) & Police (17.2%), then came the Chiefs Office (16%) and the Lands Ministry at 6.3%. On the government agencies list, the Kenya Police Service emerged as the most corrupt at 39% followed by Kenya Power (12%) and the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) at 11%. For ministries, Interior and Coordination of National Government was most corrupt followed by Heath, Agriculture, and Lands.

EACC chairman Dr. Eliud Wabukala during the launch called on State Officers implicated in corruption cases to step aside until the case is heard and determined.“There also needs to be a law for managing seized assets. We need a law on unrestricted access to financial declaration Documents, wealth declaration,” he said.

Enhancing public education and sensitization on an individual role in the fight against corruption and unethical conduct, introducing an award, and reward system for anti-corruption champions, and enhancing policies and laws to govern the protection of whistle-blowers could go a long way in fighting the vice
