corruption is the misuse of public resources by those how are in power.
there are many ways in which people in many backgrounds of the world believe that if a police officer who takes bribes from a matatu(passenger vehicle) taut is corrupt,but not the headteacher who takes a bribe to admit a child to school,even though the child have not qualified to join the school.
The public officer who takes a bribe to render a surface in government office is corrupt.but not the official who demands money to get the job or give you a contract even though you may be the least qualified.
Many Kenyans think there are two levels of corruption,one that is evil and one that is acceptable it never occurs to them that using the influence of leaders from our tribe or village to get us jobs amounts to corruption.Constant lobbying anytime there are appointments or an election amounts to corruption.when we say we want to have one of our own as president or minister all what we have in mind is to have a person who will use the high position to us ahead and do us favors especially employment opportunities.we do not care or bother whether we are qualified or more deserving than others at that moment we do not consider this as corruption yet this kind of favoring our people has caused a lot of problems to our continent
.such problems include,recruitment of employment,and consequent bloating of local authorities.all these are as a result of corruption we naively think is unacceptable members of parliament feel it is perfectly in order to be given a certain quarter to fill with their constituent even if the results in a bloated and financially overburdened sector of the economy.
from these,the members of parliament are likely to win more votes in next election some people holding highly office even sell forms for admission to collage,schools and employment. tragically,the people who are supposed to be watch dogs to ensure corruption is checked end up joining the bad-wagon now the question who will bails us from these evil?and even more terrifying question is.who will watch the watchers.
