EU urges civil societies to work with gov’t in fighting graft
The European Union has challenged civil societies and legal systems officials to work jointly with the national government to fight rampant cases of corruption in the country as well as create a conducive economic environment.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday during a visit at the Port of Mombasa, deputy head of EU delegation, Mr Bruno Pozzi, insisted that Kenyans should work hard to improve infrastructure and all challenges that undermine development and job creation.
Mr Pozzi further noted that despite the government’s willingness to fight corruption, there are still some obstacles that require all stakeholders to work as a team to fight the vice.
He intimated that some problems being witnessed in Kenya are also being experienced in other countries around the world.
The EU head affirmed that the organisation is ready and willing to work with the Kenyan government and share with it good practices that will enable it to overcome the economic challenges that affect the country’s potential.
