CASE: TUIYOT –NG'ANIAT BRIDGE CDF FUNDED PROJECT IN KAPSERET CONSTITUENCY

Transparency International Kenya’s Advocacy and Legal Advisory Centre, Eldoret helped to avert a protest in Uasin Gishu stemming from a dispute concerning the  management of a Constituency Development Fund project.

On 8th January 2014, four clients visited the Eldoret Advocacy and Legal Advisory Centre. The clients were residents of Kapseret constituency in Uasin-Gishu County. They presented their complaint regarding an ongoing Constituency Development Fund project under construction  in the constituency. The project was the Tuiyo - Nganiat Bridge.

A government budget is a document presenting the government's proposed revenues, spending and priorities for a financial year. The budget is passed by the legislature, approved by the chief executive and presented by the national or county treasury to the national or county assemblies.

It is also a set of procedures by which the government rations resources and controls spending among the various government agencies. The government budget is used as an instrument for economic policy, management and accountability.

It is an allocation mechanism that aims to maximise the contribution of public expenditure to national welfare.

As Kenya works towards achieving the goals of Vision 2030, corruption threatens to hold back its full realisation unless more deliberate effort is taken to fight the vice.

Major corruption scandals in Kenya have gone unpunished. Kenya has lost billions of shillings in the Goldenberg, Anglo Leasing, Triton Oil and Free Primary Education scandals to mention but a few.

Transparency International, its chapters and partners in more than 110 countries around the world, Individual Members, the International Board of Directors and Advisory Council wish to express their deepest sympathy to the family of Gustave Sharangabo Makonene, a most respected member of Transparency International Rwanda, who was murdered one year ago today. As a Movement focused on stopping the scourge of corruption and bringing dignity into people’s daily lives, we will never forget Gustave. We cannot rest until those responsible have faced justice. Transparency International sends its support to Gustave’s family and Transparency International Rwanda at this time of great sadness and grief.

Mr. David* has been working as a village elder in Njiiru District, Nairobi County for over 5 years. He understands that as a public officer, the services rendered to the people within his village which he administers are given for free, and has served the people as such.

However according to him, being given a gift by the citizens after serving them diligently has been a welcome gesture, and he sees nothing wrong with that. His argument is that as long as he does not request for the gifts after serving them well; and it is done in their own volition, it is well acceptable.
