Kenya is still among the most corrupt countries in the world according to a study done by Transparency International.
According to the study done in a total of 168 countries, Kenya was placed at position 139 making her among the top 30 most corrupt countries.
Somalia and North Korea took the lead as the most corrupt countries in the world with corruption being recorded in almost every field.
Rwanda was ranked as the least corrupt country in Africa having been placed at position 44, meaning if the study was conducted in Africa, she could be the first with the least corruption.
This is not the first time that Kenya has been placed on a global index in terms of corruption with mega scandals being reported in various sector.
The report indicates that despite the fact that there have been efforts to tame out the vice, no single asset recovery has been conducted.
The year 2015 went down as a year that was ruled with numerous corruption allegations in the government sectors.
This forced the president to declare corruption as a threat to national security and vowed to fight it to the later.
Some senior government officials including cabinet secretaries were forced to step aside and the shown the door on corruption allegations. Most of them were cleared but none of them has been convicted ever since.
Many quarters have been blaming the judicial system in the country for being sluggish in making sure that the bigwigs who use public resources for their own gain are brought to book.
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has been seen a toothless dog that only barks without biting and the majority of the public has long lost their confidence in the body.
Other quarters have lashed out at the office of the Director of the Public Prosecution blaming it for being sycophantic as well as acting in line with the interests of the ruling party, something that has vehemently been denied by the office of the DPP.
The office of the DPP on the other hand has often shifted its blame on the judiciary for not prosecuting the cases presented before it.
Corruption still thrives in Kenya and this has been aided by the blame game between the organs tasked with the mandate of fighting corruption.
