Michela Wrong's new book on Kenyan corruption-buster John Githongo has been an immediate hit, serialised in Kenya's Daily Nation and selling fast everywhere. This characteristically outspoken review by Sir Edward Clay explains why.
Sir Edward was British High Commissioner in Nairobi at the time of the Githongo saga and was reprimanded by his own masters and the Kenyan government for his comments on corruption. He has a strong message for aid donors whose largesse supports ruling cliques in Africa.
