The Chairperson announced that he was planning to lead a team from the Judiciary, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Legal Affairs Committee of the National Assembly to the United Kingdom to get a better view of the implementation of the Bribery Act of UK, which Kenyas Bribery Act is modeled on.

Referring to a report titled The Business Case Against Corruption, compiled by the International Chamber of Commerce, Transparency International and the United Nations Global Compact, among other organizations, he noted that corruption adds up to 10% of the total cost of doing business and up to 25% to the total cost of procurement contracts in developing countries.

The report further showed that the cost of corruption equals more than 5% of the global GDP (US $ 2.6 trillion), with more than US $1 trillion being paid in bribes each year; This is a huge burden and loss to the many people trying to conduct genuine business, he told the business leaders, urging them to “create a level playing ground for all actors to ease the burden of conducting business for the welfare of the country.
