Abstract:The departure of former President Daniel arap Moi from Kenya's political scene and the ascension to power of the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC) after the 2002 elections generated hope that a political system that had become almost synonymous with corruption would undergo fundamental redemption. While the early days of NARC rule seem to paint a picture of a government committed to combating corruption, most analysts continue to warn the Kenyan public and the international community not to slip into premature excitement. This article puts the early days of NARC's rule under scrutiny with a view to shedding light on the new government's commitment to eradicate the scourge of corruption. Notes, ref., sum.
