EACC says Nyamira County has highest claims of corruption

By Naftal Makori | October 27th 2014

Nyamira, Kenya: With many corruption complaints having reached the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) desk, Governor John Nyagarama has declared war on the vice that is tainting the county's image.

EACC Deputy Director in charge of Western Region Charles Rasugu, the county has the highest complaints in the region.

Mr Rasugu made the revelation during an integrity orientation workshop at a Kisumu hotel over the weekend.

The workshop targeted mainstreaming ethics and anti-corruption practices in the county, months after Mr Nyagarama's administration partnered with the commission in a bid to end graft claims.

Rasugu said failure to follow procurement guidelines and employee recruitment processes formed the major subjects of complaints the commission was receiving. "My Government has embraced zero tolerance towards corruption by initiating complaints boxes," said Nyagarama.

Making economic sense out of the figures: The government did not create jobs and rain or lack of it should not be the victim.
other area the government failed in is protecting the local products and ensuring cheap and fake products from outside do not flood the local market. Can anyone tell me what happened with the switching off or unregistered phone lines and the fake phones? (Since that announcement I have gotten so many threatening smses which when the police tried to look into in details, they concluded the most of those numbers are unregistered) Another of such products is the electric blub, unless am a lone but the 80 watts bulb which used to cost Ksh 50 in 2012 now cost Ksh 150, but only last for one  week. In fact if you go to the vendors they ask you which type you would want: the cheap China made or original and there is no knowing which one of those is the original Phillip bulb out there! The net effect is that the poor as continued to go back to his/her pocket so often since the bulbs keeps blowing up: that is also an increase in the cost of living!
