The Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission (EACC) has suggested a value-based education system in Kenya where corruption is taught as a unit to help in the war on graft.
According to EACC commissioner Paul Mwaniki, teenagers and young adults will be able to make more informed decisions if they are taught the devastating ramifications of corruption early in their lives.
Mwaniki also noted the alarming rise in corruption incidences in the country, rising from 38.7% in 2017 to 41% in 2019.
“The EACC National Ethics and Corruption Survey 2018 revealed that the number of people who encountered corruption and unethical incidences increased marginally from 38.9 per cent in 2017 to 41.8 per cent in 2018,” the EACC commissioner spoke on Tuesday, August 13.
He was in attendance of the pre-conference on Entrenching Value-Based Education where he recommended the formation of integrity clubs in schools.
EACC commissioner Paul Mwaniki, said young adults will be able to make more informed decisions if they are taught the devastating ramifications of corruption early in their lives.
Such groups, according to Mwaniki, would go a long way in identifying leaders of integrity at a very young age.
“The constitution underscores values as the basis for good governance, human rights, identity, effective public service delivery and leadership. These values need to be instilled through our education institutions,” he added.
The Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) is a new system of education which is aimed at developing skills and knowledge and applying them in real life situations.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the EACC has already implemented an education training and awareness program to try and instill values to the youth.
