EACC Launches Bible Study Guide to Fight Corruption

  • The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Wednesday launched a Bible study guide as a means of fighting corruption in the country.

    In the event attended by EACC Deputy CEO Mr. Michael Mubea and Commissioner Rose M. Macharia, the document was released in collaboration with the Inter-Religious Sector to be used by groups and individuals as a moral compass in the war against graft.

    The Bible Study Guide titled Integrity: A Weapon Against Corruption is meant to inspire Kenyans to act and to believe the country can be free from vice.

    It is further intended to help Kenyans interact with the Bible and discover God's position on corruption and his direction on living a corruption free life.

    "Every member of our society has an opportunity to contribute to the success of the war against corruption. Regardless of your status in the society, you can make a difference. 

    "The fight against corruption is winnable but everyone must commit to live a life that enhances the virtues of integrity, justice, patriotism and love for one another," the commission stated on Twitter.

    The commission has experienced a renewed fight against corruption with arrests of high profile personalities over the past months.

    Busia Governor Sospeter Ojamoong and former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero are among the people who have been arrested and arraigned in court to face graft charges.

    In August, Deputy Supreme Court Justice Philomena Mwilu was apprehended and faced numerous counts of stealing, abuse of office and tax evasion.

    The above-mentioned cases are yet to be concluded.
