Kampf der Korruption in Kenia

PR-Maßnahme oder langfristige Strategie?

Korruption ist in den vergangenen Monaten das zentrale Thema in der politischen Diskussion Kenias. Präsident Kenyatta hat einen „war on graft“ ausgerufen, der in den Medien als zentraler Bestandteil seiner letzten Amtszeit verstanden wird. Öffentlichkeitswirksam wurden illegal errichtete Gebäude abgerissen. Alle öffentlichen Angestellten müssen sich einem demütigenden „livestyle audit“ unterziehen, in welchem Ihre Vermögenssituation untersucht wird. Die Motive für dieses Vorgehen sind dabei unklar. Arbeitet der Präsident wirklich an seinem politischen Vermächtnis, zwingt die desaströse finanzielle Lage die Regierung zum Durchgreifen, oder ist alles eine geschickt inszenierte PR-Kampagne, der ein Machtkampf innerhalb der Regierung zugrunde liegt?

The Handshake - Where Does Kenya Stand in Opposition?

The March 9 handshake remains the principal highlight of Kenya’s post-election period. With the recent tour of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto accompanied by Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to Nyanza region - an opposition stronghold on the 13th December; the significant political developments still leave questions lingering among many Kenyans. As much as the handshake seeks to address nine mutual issues namely: ethnic antagonism, lack of a national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, divisive elections, security, corruption, shared prosperity and responsibility through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), there are still more underlying issues yet to be resolved.
