EACC Conducts Workshop to Combat Corruption in Trans Nzoia’s Climate Programs

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) organized a sensitization workshop targeting the Trans Nzoia County Climate Change Unit (CCU) to address corruption issues during the implementation of the World Bank Funded Financing Locally Led Climate Actions program.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) organized a sensitization workshop targeting the Trans Nzoia County Climate Change Unit (CCU) to address corruption issues during the implementation of the World Bank Funded Financing Locally Led Climate Actions program. The workshop aimed to educate CCU members on corruption prevention, raise awareness about the dangers of corruption, and provide guidance on reporting and handling corruption complaints.

Held at a Kitale hotel, the one-day event saw EACC officers elaborate on the commission’s mandates, foundational understanding of corruption and unethical practices, anti-corruption legal frameworks, and procedures for reporting and handling corruption cases. Led by EACC Assistant Director Alfred Mwachungha, the workshop focused on corruption prevention strategies, identifying potential loopholes for corruption, and empowering CCU members to report any corrupt activities they encounter.

The CCU members were urged to further disseminate the knowledge gained to the Ward Climate Change Planning Committees and community members to help prevent and report corruption effectively. Mary Ng’ang’a and Ali Khalif from EACC provided insights into the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act, 2003, the Anti-Bribery Act, 2016, and the Leadership and Integrity Act, 2012, emphasizing their relevance to the climate change sector and the importance of adhering to ethical standards in program implementation.

Representatives from the State Department for Devolution, including Joy …, encouraged the CCU to provide technical expertise and guidance to communities and climate change organs to ensure the proper utilization of resources. They pledged support for capacity building, promoting intergovernmental relations, and enhancing checks and balances to prevent corruption.

In response to the workshop, CCU Focal Person Godfrey Wekesa committed to formulating an Anti-Corruption Action Plan for the FLLoCA program within a month. The action plan will outline processes, allocated resources, responsible persons, timelines for activities, and mechanisms for monitoring and evaluation to ensure transparency and accountability in climate change initiatives.
