Citizen Demand and Oversight Programme
This programme focuses on concerns around inadequate enforcement of constitutional and legal provisions on leadership, integrity, and anti-corruption; normalization of corruption at individual and societal levels; corrupt, unethical, and unaccountable leadership; and inefficient, ineffective, and non-responsive public service delivery and humanitarian aid systems. Other challenges include inefficient, ineffective, and inaccessible judicial systems and weak civic voice/claim-making towards rights.
Under the programme, the promotion of citizen participation in all governance processes will be a core strategy. Key areas of intervention include;
Citizen (Individual) and Leadership Integrity: This sub-area seeks to promote ethical values, norms, and behavior among citizens, and to support citizens to demand for integrity and hold leaders accountable.
- Increased levels of citizen’s monitoring leaders’ performance, holding them to account and participating in public affairs.
- Demonstrated positive social behavior change (perceptions, practices) against corruption & theft.
- Greater enforcement/ adherence to chapter 6 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 and laws on leadership integrity.
- Increased levels of ethics, transparency, and accountability by leaders and citizens.
Access to Public Services and Aid Resources: This sub-area seeks to contribute to enhanced access to responsive high-quality public services and aid resources.
- Citizens demand their rights and hold service deliverers accountable to quality services delivery.
- Increased resource allocation to services prioritized by citizens.
- Increased access to responsive, timely, and high-quality health, education, WASH, and humanitarian aid services.
Access to Justice: This sub-area seeks to increase access to appropriate/effective redress for victims of corruption-related injustices.
- Expeditious and suitable resolution of corruption-related cases/ injustices.
- Increased reporting of corruption cases.

Advocacy and Legal Advisory Centres (ALACs): Through the Advocacy and Legal Advisory Centres (ALACs) established in Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu and Nairobi, TI-Kenya encourages corruption victims to come forward with corruption-related complaints. Cases filed in the ALACs provide concrete evidence to advocate for institutional and legal reforms. ALAC is a walk-in, call-in center or mail in center where a citizen can obtain free and confidential advice on corruption cases. ALAC works with communities to empower them to report 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.
