I Paid a Bribe Initiative Launched in Kenya

The “I Paid a Bribe” project, a successful initiative implemented in India by the NGO Janaagraha, has now for the first time been replicated in another country, and is being implemented in Kenya since last December. According to Anthony Regui, the founder of the initiative in Kenya, the website (http://www.ipaidabribe.or.ke/) has already registered 300 bribery reports.

The Kenyan version is based on the software used by the Indian project and guarantees anonymity to users who report their cases. One of the main objectives of the initiative, as in the Indian case, is to generate information about how and where bribes take place.

In addition to the reporting system, the website also offers a section where people write about their experiences in avoiding bribes, and a third section with stories about positive examples of honest public officials and good public service delivery.
