Only in Kenya: EACC Turns to God in War on Corruption

September 27, 2018

We are not exactly sure how divine intervention will help us in the fight against rampant corruption in Kenya but the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is convinced we need it.

The anti-graft agency, together with the Inter-Religious Sector, has launched a Bible Study Guide titled ‘Integrity: A Weapon Against Corruption’.

The study guide was launched on Wednesday in an event graced by EACC Commissioner Rose M. Macharia and EACC Deputy CEO Mr. Michael Mubea.

According to the EACC, “The Bible Study Guide is intended to help Kenyans interact with the Bible and discover God’s position on corruption and his direction on living a corruption-free life.”

The commision noted that “every member of the society has an opportunity to contribute to the success of the war against corruption.”

“Regardless of your status in the society, you can make a difference. The Bible Study Guide inspires us to act and to believe our country can be free from corruption.”

EACC further said the fight against corruption can be won if everyone is committed to a virtuous lifestyle.

“The fight against corruption is winnable but everyone must commit to live a life that enhances the virtues of integrity, justice, patriotism and love for one another,”  the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission said on Twitter.

As expected, the move has not been received well by a majority of Kenyans on Twitter who claim the Bible Study Guide is not a feasible or tangible enough method to impact any meaningful change in the tough war on corruption.
