EO 204 – Huxley Zomolo Kahati

Kenya Ports Authority
Senior Administrative Officer

Why did you attend the programme?
I attended the course so that I could appreciate corruption prevention in my organisation and secondly on how to come up with corruption prevention plans/strategies of the organisation. My company sent me to this course after complaints by our customers that there was rampant corruption within the organisation and that they wanted to appoint Integrity assurance officers in all the divisions. In order for the organisation to appoint the officers, they were of the view that I be trained along these lines for them to enable me to obtain the skills to perform my new assignment profesionally, be able to educate other officers on corruption related issues and the importance of a corrupt-free organisation.

How did the programme benefit you personally?
As a person, I benefitted from this by obtaining a certificate which I can use at other avenues. I am able to understand what corruption is and how it can be avoided. It was beneficial since it broadens my mind on the issues of corruption and how corruption can affect the economy of the country.

How is it benefitting your company?
It is beneficial to the company in that by sealing the loopholes which were trailing the much needed revenues, the organisation is able to make huge profits, good reputation, better renumeration of staff, good corporate image and able to undertake social corporate responsibility.
