Michela Wrong offers the heart of her new book's argument in a column for the Times:
Wambui (not her real name) pays up to five bribes a week. The anti- corruption group Transparency International reports that kitu kidogo (a “little something”) features in 54per cent of the average Kenyan's dealings with institutions. Six years after President Moi made way for an Administration sworn to clean government, Kenya is suffocating in sleaze. “The only difference in Moi's time,” Wambui says, “was that no one tried to hide it. Now people feel ashamed, but do it anyway.”
