Germany Helps Promote Good Governance in Kenya

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, or BMZ, is setting up a €14 million ($19 million) fund to help improve transparency, strengthen the rule of law, and combat corruption in Kenya, according to Gudrun Kopp, parliamentary state secretary at BMZ.

Kopp announced the creation of the fund at the end of her three-day visit to the African nation. Some €3 million of the total funding has already been appropriated.

Civil society organizations, Kopp said, will be key to promoting good governance and gender equality and addressing social inequalities in Kenya.
