If Amber Rudd was a Kenyan the Minister would step down

British minister of interior Amber Rudd would face investigation and possibly prosecution by the EACC – if she was a Kenyan minister.

If the Kenyan laws were enforced and to be followed worldwide, corruption would have little room. Because the laws are very good, even compared to other countries.
Just a few examples of September 2016:
EU commissioner Neelie Kroos seems to have violated EU rules by being a director of “Mint Holders Ltd.” on the Bahamas and not revealing it to the EU offices. But in Kenya this would be a serious offence.

British minister of interior Amber Rudd would face investigation and possibly prosecution by the EACC – if she was a Kenyan minister. Because in Kenya, she would be suspected of violating the Leadership Integrity Act Sec.19 as well as Sec. 26 to 34 of the Public Officers Ethics Act, because she is listed as the director of two companies on the Bahamas the Guardian reports (ext. link) – and nobody knew it.

Meanwhile the state of Bahamas seems not to be fashionable with rich Kenyans as a company location. A search in the database “Bahamas Leaks” that was published (among others) by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ext. link) reveals no Kenya-related datasets.

But earlier this year the “Panama Papers” that are integrated into the same “offshoreleaks” which everybody can search on the ICIJ website, showed addresses, persons and companies linked to Kenya. Try the search here (ext. link):
