Kenya Corruption Threatens To Engulf Government Auditor General Says


NAIROBI – High-level corruption across all levels of government in Kenya threatens the integrity and basic functioning of the state, the auditor general told Reuters on Thursday.

Kenyan media have reported on dozens of graft scandals involving public officers conspiring to steal from state coffers since President Uhuru Kenyatta took office in 2013. Some officials have been tried, but none have been convicted.

“If we don’t watch out, it will engulf us,” Edward Ouko told Reuters in an interview, describing the level of graft as shocking.
