World Bank is wide awake to corruption in Kenya
From Mr Gobind Nankani (Vice President, Africa Region, World Bank)
Sir, Michael Holman ("The donors who turn a blind eye to Kenyan sleaze" 16 February 2006) claims that the World Bank has continued lending large amounts of money to Kenya without regard for corruption there. This is simply not true. Below are the facts, which are publicly available on our website www.worldbank.org.
"Over the past several months the government has taken important anti-corruption actions such as passing a landmark procurement bill that makes security procurement (like those associated with Anglo Leasing) transparent. Recently, it has also begun enforcing political accountability. We strongy urge the government to continue and intensify such actions, and stand ready to assist further as needed.
