Governance Ethics & Business: Kenyan Growing Economy at Cross-road in the 21st Century

Peter Onyango Onyoyo *
School of Law, University of Nairobi, Kenya


Governance Ethics and business: Kenya at a Cross Road in the 21st Century is an intellectual investigation into what has not worked well so far despite all attributed good reasons. The author has touched on spheres of public behavioural conduct in business affairs to reveal the rot in the entire system. The exploration is backed by tangible cases of how ethical standards are influencing the national economy. The essay acknowledges and compliments reform process and affirmative action especially the legal transformation. But also he admits that change of law and adjustments within the institutions have not transformed governance, public accountability, and work ethics. Reading from the essay one shall get to understand that ethical problems are not a question of having good laws in place but also change of attitude, and winning hearts and minds of leaders.
