COMMISSION TRAINS JOURNALISTS ON CORRUPTION REPORTING

21 April, 2017: The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in partnership with the Media Council of Kenya (MCK), has concluded a two-day anti-corruption training for journalists aimed at building their capacity to effectively report on corruption matters.

Among the issues covered were; the Anti-Corruption Legal Framework, which comprises all the salient legislative provisions used in the fight against graft. Some of these are the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act (ACECA) 2003, the Leadership and Integrity Act (LIA) 2012, the Bribery Act 2016, and Chapter Six of the Constitution.

The journalists were also exposed to the Code of Conduct on ethics and professionalism in the media and investigative reporting on corruption issues. Facilitating the session, Mr. Joe Kadhi noted the rapid decline of professionalism in the media and emphasized the need to improve it. Other issues included democracy and its relevance in the fight against graft.

During the official opening, EACCs Director of Ethics and Leadership, Ms. Lucy Kinuthia, noted the paramount role the media plays in the fight against corruption. Success or failure in the fight against corruption will not only depend on EACC, but also on other players and media plays a critical role in this fight, she said. She further noted that journalists hold a special position in the society and challenged them to use their positions to influence positive change.

MCKs Chief Executive Officer Dr. Haron Mwangi noted the need to build journalists capacity to effectively tackle corruption matters. He further challenged them to objectively report on corruption and its detrimental effects on the country.

The journalists thanked the Commission for the timely training and promised to write well informed pieces on corruption. The training, organized by the Preventive Services Directorate, was held at the Sentrim Elementaita Lodge in Nakuru County.
