Once considered an oasis of calm in East Africa, Kenya is struggling to shed its new reputation for rampant corruption and tribal enmity. With national elections slated for next year, Kenya faces a political and economic crisis.

This Discussion Paper argues that Kenya needs to be weaned off its current unhealthy relationship with the aid community during a phased but radical change of policy, comprising a new way of enlisting the private sector in Kenya and abroad; and a new mode of encouraging debate between Kenyans and donors.
