Members of the National Anti-Corruption Campaign Steering Committee (NACCSC) participated in the 1st ever national anti-corruption conference that was organized by the Multisectoral lnitiative against corruption at Bomas of Kenya.  

The objective of the workshop was to bring leaders together to come up with a unified approach to fight corruption. It was the epitome of a new beginning where various sectors gave their commitments towards eradicating the vice. It was also a forum where citizens gave their demands to various institutions in order to slay the corruption dragon.

It was a time for leaders to take responsibility for failing the nation in their respective areas of jurisdiction and come up with a reform agenda. It was also a forum that endorsed the fight against corruption through the following strategies: promoting national values as enshrined in chapter 10 of the constitution; undertaking citizen mobilization; promoting good leadership and integrity at all levels in both private and public sectors; undertaking to pray for the nation led by religious leaders; and creating a national movement against corruption where each citizen has a role to play.

Addressing the conference, the Chairperson of the Initiative Lee Karuri observed that when civilians are involved, the war will definitely be won.
