Mission accomplished. Kenya has made a name for itself when it comes to corruption. Movie makers have taken note, and in the latest episode political drama Madam Secretary, this takes centre stage.
The US Secretary of State’s office has just compiled a report titled ‘Corruption in East Africa and its Negative Impact on US Competitive Advantage in the Region’.
