Kenya unable to pass anticorruption legislation

US - The United States regrets Kenya was unable to pass an anticorruption bill to pave the way for receiving International Monetary Fund (IMF) aid and restarting an economy in its worst shape since the 1960s, the State Department said yesterday, 15 August.

"In order to revitalise its economy and win the confidence of investors and international financial institutions, Kenya needs to begin tackling corruption seriously," U.S. Deputy State Department Spokesman Philip Reeker told reporters.
