Integrity Uadilifu

Nomination Deadline: 12.00PM Saturday 14th November 2016!
1.0 Background
The United Nations’ International Anti-Corruption Day (IAC) commemorated annually on 9th
December provides government, leaders, anti-corruption agencies, civil society organizations,
private sector and citizens with an opportunity to reflect and engage in the fight against
corruption and advocate for greater transparency, accountability, integrity and better service
delivery from leaders and public institutions.
So far in 2016, high-profile corruption scandals have implicated top leadership of the Independent
Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the Ethics & Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) as
well as the Supreme Court of Kenya. Kenyans continue to experience the negative effects of a
deepened lack of integrity in the management of public resources, increased impunity and
disregard for the rule of law.
The Integrity Champion Awards are intended to inspire hope and increase direct citizen action
and engagement in the anti-corruption struggle. The awards recognise the power of active
citizenship in disrupting corruption and demanding accountability. The Awards reinforce the need
to identify and celebrate publicly institutions, whistle blowers and ordinary citizens who have taken
action, however small, to shine the light of integrity and fight corruption in their own spaces.
