EFFECTIVE ANTI-CORRUPTION ADVOCACY THROUGH MULTI-STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT: LESSONS FROM KENYA

Civil society teamwork is crucial. This means working within existing civil society coalitions and building partnerships with organisations that have strong operations and legitimacy in the places where you intervene.

All stakeholders can help fight corruption together.

For example, TI-Kenya worked with Haki Madini (Justice Mining) Kenya (a coalition of civil society and faith-based organisations on mining in Kenya), to build partnerships that had strong existing operations and legitimacy in parts of the country where TI-Kenya works. TI-Kenya played a facilitation role to resolve disagreements within civil society that undermined the unity of their message and goals.

“The best way to solve conflict at times is to include a third party”.

Alfred Yambo

We believe that one of the best ways to defeat corruption in Ndhiwa and Kenya at large, is to have an inclusion of industries, institutions and management of various public entities. These can champion a voice that forces the stakeholders to fight corruption even further than what has been done to date.

This is not just corruption but other issues that Ndhiwa faces such as crime, unemployment and lack of business capital to maximize on investments. All these are very easy to solve if at all everyone works together.

All Ndhiwa business communities and institutions including the churches are therefore urged to raise their voices in the fight against corruption and inequality. Yes, you too have a voice.
