Amid Fraud Allegations, Kenya Appeals for More Aid

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki said the top government officials allegedly involved in defrauding education aid to Kenya have been suspended and are being prosecuted, the Daily Nation reports. Kibaki, who met with the U.K. Department for International Development on Thursday, also expressed hope that donors will still support Kenya despite the controversial incident. The U.K. and the U.S. have both suspended their development assistance for Kenya’s education sector following the rise of claims that some officials within Kenya’s education ministry have engaged in acts of corruption and fraud.
