Transparency International – Kenya

Transparency International–Kenya (TI-Kenya) is a non-profit organisation founded in 1999 with the aim of developing a transparent and corruption free society through good governance and social justice initiatives. TI-Kenya is one of the autonomous chapters of the global Transparency International movement that are all bound by a common vision of a corruption-free world. The global movement provides a platform for sharing knowledge and experience, developing strategies to respond to regionally distinct patterns of corruption and initiating advocacy campaigns at both the regional and sub-regional level.

The vision of TI Kenya is that of a transparent, accountable and corruption-free Kenya and the mission is to transform the society and institutions by supporting the development of high integrity leadership in all sectors and at all levels.

TI-Kenya’s key goals are: Institutions that are efficient and deliver quality services; and a society that upholds and promotes integrity.

TI-Kenya is a leading civil society organisation in anti-corruption with over 17 years’ experience in governance work both at the regional, national and county levels, including direct engagement with the Government, the private sector, individuals and groups .

TI-Kenya has its main office in Nairobi and a regional presence in the Coast, Rift Valley, the larger Western Kenya and parts of Eastern Kenya through its four Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs1) in Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu and Nairobi. Through the ALACs, victims and witnesses of corruption can obtain free and confidential advice on corruption cases.

About this Site

RoGGKenya is a joint effort by five organizations:

  • Article 19 East Africa
  • Constitution and Reform Education Consortium (CRECO)
  • DW Akademie
  • Kenya Correspondents’ Association
  • Transparency International

The website is aimed at encouraging fact-based and impartial reporting on good governance and corruption in Kenya. It points to original sources, provides reporting ideas and gives hints on how to follow-up on specific stories that are in the news.

 

The Idea behind RoGGKenya

The site was developed from DW Akademie trainings with radio journalists in the Rift Valley, Western and Nyanza regions. In these trainings it became apparent that a simple way should be found to leave opinion-based reporting and head for fact-based reporting on genuine self researched stories. RoGGKenya tries to facilitate this shift of perspective by providing the necessary resources at the fingertips or on the smartphones of journalists.

RoGGKenya – Reporting on Good Governance and Corruption in Kenya

RoGGKenya.org is a site for Kenyan journalists and bloggers.
A one-stop-shop for those who are interested in reporting on good governance and corruption. In Kenya, it is a good time for independent media to report on these issues because:

  • A huge majority of leaders in the country fully support the fight on corruption.
  • Kenya has been ranked very low on good governance. Corruption is high.
  • The laws and rules governing the country are very good (as a UN report recently said).

Reporting on Good Governance and corruption in counties and nationally should, ideally, be a daily routine for journalists. Their task should be to find where all the good laws and plans are being followed for the well being of the citizens of Kenya. Under the proposition of constructive journalism, positive results of the research are as welcome as the bad news that the public seem to be used to. And it does not have to entail a month long investigation which only few can afford to do.
