KEPSA Seeks Partnership With EACC Through Multi-sectoral Anti-corruption Forum
The Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) paid a courtesy call on EACC to seek support in a forum deemed to end graft in the country. The Forum named Multi-Sectoral Anti-Corruption Forum is a platform that brings together public and private entities to form a strong pillar in the fight against corruption in the business community.
The delegation was led by KEPSA Chairperson Mr. Lee Karuri who said that the private sector is very keen with matters that deal with corruption in the country. He also stressed that collaboration between private and public sectors is the key to fighting corruption and improve growth and development in the country. He said that in fighting corruption, we will achieve a morally upright government.
EACC Chairperson, Archbishop (Rtd) Eliud Wabukala who hosted the delegation stressed that it the best practice to engage in partnership in the fight against corruption and expressed his gratitude to KEPSA for enlisting their support in the fight against graft. He said that it is the responsibility of every individual to prevent corruption and subsequently fight it.
The Deputy CEO, Mr. Michael Mubea, stated that the private sector has come in at the right time to offer their support in the fight against corruption since the private sector has not been exempted in the investigation of corruption as provided for in the Bribery Act, 2016 which is already being implemented.
The Multi-Sectoral Anti-Corruption Forum is an umbrella covering the Private Sector, Religious Sector, The Media, Civil Society, Trade Unions, Academia, Development Partners, The Youth and Citizens. It will be launched on 28th June 2018.
