President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Anglican Archbishop Eliud Wabukhala to chair the National Anti-Corruption Campaign Steering Committee of Kenya.

The appointment of the 14-member committee, which includes Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission boss Mumo Matemu, was announced in the latest Kenyan Gazette.

Wabukhala will be deputised by Rev Jessie Mutura.

The committee will run nationwide public education campaign aimed at changing Kenyans’ attitude towards corruption.

“The committee shall develop a mechanism for engaging strategic stakeholders and the general public to evolve a strong anti-corruption culture and participate in the fight against corruption,” reads part of their mandate.

 The team is answerable only to the President but will work closely with EACC.

 Other members of the committee are Solicitor General Njee Muturi, Treasury PS Kamau Thugge and his Devolution counterpart Mwanamaka Amani.

 Rahab Mwikali Muiu, Jardine Mgharo Mwangeka, Jackline Akinyi Maganda, Francis Ng’ang’a, and Adan Wachu are part of the team.

  1. How good to see the Church recognised as a moral leader! May it lead by example, and make available to us in SA, and the rest of Africa, its “mechanism for engaging strategic stakeholders and the general public to evolve a strong anti-corruption culture and participate in the fight against corruption”. God knows we need it!
