Anti-Corruption Resources for Religious Communities
17:08:2021: The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has embarked on a nation-wide dissemination of anti-corruption resource materials aimed at mainstreaming an integrity and anti-corruption culture among religious communities. The materials, booklets, brochures and posters have been developed through a partnership between the Commission and the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya (IRCK). They carry anti-corruption messages and practical tips for religious leaders and congregants, and target christians, muslims and hindus, among other faithful. The materials spotlight religious approaches to ethics and integrity, the understanding of corruption, its causes, dimensions and manifestations, consequences, as well as leadership and strategies for fighting it. All these themes have been inspired by lessons from the relevant holy books.As part of this dissemination programme, the Commission is calling upon all religious leaders and congregations to abstain from corrupt activities as stipulated in the Bible, Quran, Gita and other holy books. It is anticipated that when the values Kenyans learn in churches, mosques, temples and other places of worship are carried into the public service, there will be less corruption in the society. Religious leaders and congregations are implored to study these materials and apply the ethical standards learned whenever they discharge any duty in the public, private and civil society sectors in Kenya.
