What is ALAC?

Advocacy and Legal Advisory Center (ALAC) is a walk-in, call-in centre or mail in center where a citizen can obtain free and confidential advice on corruption cases. TI-Kenya in collaboration with government commissions and coalition partners against corruption in Coast, North Rift, Western and Nairobi regions are working to empower citizens to actively participate in the fight against corruption in Kenya.

Why ALAC?

Although corruption causes affects Kenyans seeking public services in key sectors like Water, security, education and health, research has shown that many corruption cases go unreported.Among the top reasons as to why they said they would not report given include:

•I knew no action would be taken even if I reported
•Didn't know where to report
•Did not occur to me that I should report
•Fear of Self incrimination
•Fear of intimidation

ALAC works with communities to empower them to overcome these reasons for not reporting corruption. ALAC also offers a unique opportunity for the fight against corruption in Kenya as it gives opportunity to gather data on graft incidents in various public and private institutions.

When you visit ALAC, the ALAC officer will:

•Receive your complaint(s)/case(s) on CORRUPTION; 
•Provide legal advice on the case(s); 
•Refer the case to relevant institutions of Government and track the progress of the complaint(s) through the IPCRM system.
