Public Finance Mismanagement during emergencies: A case of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

TYPE:
This study examined public finance mismanagement in emergencies such as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and how that influences politics in Kenya. This study also sought to establish and demonstrate the putative notion that the mismanagement of public finances in Kenya is both a systemic and structural problem; provide an assessment and a determination of the extent to which politics lends impetus to perennial mismanagement of public finances in Kenya; provide a critique of the legal, policy and institutional reforms within the public finance management eco-system in Kenya, and make proposals on how such reforms can be deepened and strengthened given the structure of the state and the unending malignant politics; the role played by both mainstream and digital media in documenting analyzing, reporting and exposing the mismanagement of public finances during emergencies such as the COVID-19 period in Kenya; demonstrate the need for deeper political discussions aimed at promoting effective and efficient public finance management in Kenya beyond COVID-19; and an assessment of the nexus between public finance mismanagement and elections in Kenya and, proposes tangible administrative, political and policy recommendations.
