In Kenya, corruption is a way of life for most people: from paying a small bribe to avoid a parking ticket to multi-million dollar deals by corrupt businessmen and politicians.
 
It costs the country billions of dollars. And despite many investigations, no one can ever remember a high-ranking official going to jail.

But a new constitution that is supposed to end impunity and create more transparency is giving people hope that things might change.

Today, The Cafe talks to Kenyans about how bad the problem of corruption is and whether it can ever be overcome.

 

The Cafe airs each week at the following times GMT: Friday: 2000; Saturday: 1200; Sunday: 0100; Monday: 0600.
