: INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY IN CONTROLLING SOCIETY FRAUD TOWARDS REALIZING KENYA’S VISION 2030
: Ronald Ojino
Abstract : With the ongoing implementation of the new development blueprint (Vision 2030) that aims to transform Kenya into a newly industrializing, “middle-income country providing a high quality life to all its citizens by the year 2030, there are concerns that fraud in society is bound to detriment the achievement of this vision.
The anchors of Kenya’s Vision 2030 include: Infrastructure, Macroeconomic Stability for long-term development, Energy and the public sector. In all these anchors of the vision, fraud is a major threat.
This paper begins with a brief review of different forms of fraud that occur in Kenya. It then looks at the various ways in which Information and Communication Technology can be used to control fraud in the Kenyan society with a discussion of both merits and demerits of each control measure listed. Moreover, the paper’s goal is to demonstrate that ICT is a powerful tool that can be used to effectively fight fraud in society.
Finally, the article discusses some recommendations that the Kenyan government can look into as it fights fraud with an aim of achieving its Vision 2030.
