In what appears to be just a simple game of wit Kenya has shifted hurriedly to the third position of the countries that are perceived to be the most corrupt in the world. The same survey from Nairobi affirmed that Kenya fared well after South Africa and France.
This blog commentary story is interested more on the damages corruption may cause to a nation due to corruption perception. Kenyan Head of State and Government declared Kenya as corrupt by referring to stealing. whining and perpetuating tribalism. Chief Justice reiterated the same sentiment when he referred to Kenya as a bandit economy. The question this story can raise is, where is the governance? Is it proper when the topmost leaders are now the whistle blowers?
There is a say that if the father starts crying in the family children will faint and collapse. When the Head of States starts expressing his emotional worry about corruption, the citizens are left totally confused and desperate. A good father will not weep over woes in the family but will take action. President Mangufuli of Tanzania did not join the Tanzanians in crying over corruption but he said – there is work to be done and since the people have entrusted him with leadership, he has to work for them. He has fired many CEO and cracked whip on the corrupt leaders to show his leadership. Governance in Kenya is lacking while some part of the population that enjoy big money and quick wealth are getting away with their unethical and illegal behaviour. Showing such emotions in a foreign land may not be the remedy. What the President ought to do is to ensure that he sacks those who are corrupt. What the Chief Justice needs to do is not to preach to Kenyans the failure of the rule of law but to ensure that the corrupt are convicted and brought to books. A CEO cannot do better by telling the shareholders how his executive staff members are reaping their money. The Board cannot justify itself by entertaining their CEO that starts weeping during the meeting over stealing and other unethical things. A serious Board will start by firing him because he is a weakling and cannot manage the company. If the Board of Directors fail to take charge of the situation, the shareholders will dissolve the Board and put a new Board in place to manage their interests.
Kenya slitting to the third position is not a surprise. It is all owed to the governance. Now unarmed citizens cannot do much but to die. When a country elects one they trust most to be in-charge of their interests in trust, and the same leader turns back with tears complaining of how impossible it is to win the war, of course, either a courageous individual would jump in and steer the battle to its final end or members may start hanging themselves to avoid the eventual defeat and shame.
A serious wife would consider divorcing a coward husband in order to feel more secured. A father who sits back to cry with his children usually will lose the trust of his children and you will be shocked when children follow their mother. What everybody needs most is a sense of security. Such sense of security comes with responsibility and show of capability to manage the situation. But going to a neighboring home and start crying how your house is collapsing is not the remedy. If anything, this is adding the injury to another injury in what lawyers term as double jeopardy. When your wife is in tears never join her thinking that you solve the problem in the house. Be bold and look for quick solution.
