Kenya’s continued poor performance in the CPI shows need to go beyond anti-corruption rhetoric. Nairobi, Kenya – 27th January 2016:
Kenya has maintained a poor score in the global Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2015 released today by the Transparency International movement. Kenya scored 25 on a scale of zero to 100 (with zero perceived to be highly corrupt, and 100 very clean), the same score recorded in 2014. Kenya is ranked at position 139 out of 168 countries and territories included in the 21st edition of the CPI. Kenya’s score is below the global average of 43 and Sub Saharan Africa’s mean of 33. Kenya had a score of 27 in 2013 and 2012, demonstrating that efforts to tackle corruption have borne little results. The CPI measures the perceived levels of public sector corruption in countries and territories worldwide and is based on expert opinion.
