    Speaking of my own country, there goes a lot I know only in skimpy details Thanks to this book, I delved into a deeper understanding of stuff I used to see in the news and let pass disinterestedly when I was in High School Grand corruption has happened in Kenya, and still happens And to my understanding, we need manyguys like Githongo Let whistles be blown Let the ordinary citizen see the government, and those politicians for what they are But, not to sound too pessimistic, I often Speaking of my own country, there goes a lot I know only in skimpy details Thanks to this book, I delved into a deeper understanding of stuff I ...

    This book is unofficially banned in Kenya which means no book store will dare to stock it but its gained quite an underground following I have found it on sale on the streets, being sold at a profitable premium by newspaper vendors.Rather than being a tell all book about a corruption scandal the book goes into some length about the nature of corruption in Kenya Tribal identity and loyalty to clans and a culture of impunity are brought out very well in ...

    A fascinating story of a man that was na ve enough to believe he can bring down corrupion in Kenya and succeeded if only in setting up a precedent that will win in the long run And another good one from Michela Wrong.

    I would like to give this book a higher rating, because I actually quite enjoyed it, but it has some definite shortcomings The greatest of these shortcomings is it s lack of a unifying thought The author can t seem to decide if this is a book about John Githongo, orgenerally about the Anglo Leasing scandal, or evengenerally a history of corruption and it s influence in Kenya This is perhaps most obvious in the last chapters of the book, where she tries to tack on a brief recount I would like to give this book a higher rating, because I actually quite enjoyed it, but it has some definite shortcomings The greatest of these shortcomings is it s lack of a unifying thought The author can t seem to decide if this is a book about John Githongo, orgenerally about the Anglo Leasing scandal, or evengenerally a history of corruption and it s influence in Kenya This is perhaps most obvious in the last chapters of the book, where she tries to tack on a brief recounting of the electoral violence of 2007 8 but it comes off feeling shoehorned in.It s an interesting piece of Kenyan history to recount, involving electoral violence, deat...

    If you have any interest in Kenya, or how corruption works in Africa, or how aid agencies can exacerbate corruption, READ THIS BOOK Wrong is a careful, clear writer who pulls no punches Nobody comes across as a hero here, but in telling the story of John Githongo, who exposed a huge corruption scandal within the Kenyan govt to the world, Wrong manages to be both pragmatic and ...

    Once again Michela Wrong s journalistic impressionism and meticulous reporting lights up a neglected corner of a neglected continent Wrong is a writer with incredible sources and she knows how to weld their information into a compelling story The book centers on John Githongo, an idealist in a world where pragmatism ruled He was appointed as the head of a new anti corruption agency created by Mwai Kibaki, newly elected president of Kenya Kibaki was only the third Chief Executive of the east Once again Michela Wrong s journalistic impressionism and meticulous reporting lights up a neglected corner of a neglected continent Wrong is a writer with incredible sources and she knows how to weld their information into a compelling story The book centers on John Githongo, an idealist in a world where pragmatism ruled He was appointed as the head of a new anti corruption agency created by Mwai Kibaki, newly elected president of Kenya Kibaki was only the third Chief Executive of the east African country, replacing Daniel arap Moi who ruled from 1978 to 2002 and who replaced the revered Jomo Kenyatta, founding father, freedom fighter, hero of African independence Kenya, according to Wrong, is structuredby tribe than anything else Membership in the Kikuyu tribe isimportant than citizenship of Kenya, for example Presiden...

    I loved Michela Wrong s book on Mobutu In The Footsteps Of Mr Kurtz and generally like books by journalists I think because I have a short attention span and get impatient with long descriptive passages that don t drive the narrative or communicate information But thats another story This story, narrowly, is about John Githongo, who was brought in by the Kibaki government in Kenya to be the anti corruption czar, but ended up doing his job a little TOO well He ultimately fled to London and I loved Michela Wrong s book on Mobutu In The Footsteps Of Mr Kurtz and generally like books by journalists I think because I have a short attention span and get impatient with long descriptive passages that don t drive the narrative or communicate information But thats another story This story, narrowly, is about John Githongo, who was brought in by the Kibaki government in Kenya to be the anti corruption czar, but ended up doing his job a little TOO well He ultimately fled to London and publicly exposed the corruption occuring within Kibaki s inner circle More broadly the book is about how tribe and ethnicity still simmer below the surface in kenya and other parts of Africa and how this is a huge part of the corruption and governnance problem in some of these countries because...

    Sometimes reading a book about a place when you have local bias does not add any marks to the book Michela does a fantastic job of dissecting the problem of graft in Kenya but with some very broad strokes Written as an historic account of inequality and injustice, the book doesto report on the general nature of corruption in Kenya than naming any specifics or creating any form of hypotheses or inference It s sometimes hard to keep up with the unwinding and undulating story however as wh Sometimes reading a book about a place when you have local bias does not add any marks to the book Michela does a fantastic job of dissecting the problem of graft in Kenya but with some very b...

    Pretty fascinating, and discouraging, stuff a Kenyan whistleblower finds out that the new reformist government is doing exactly what the old one did the title refers to a general sense that each tribe is just waiting its turn at the trough when friendly politicians get into office , and very few people foreign governments, the World Bank, people in the governmen...
