Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Corruption Should Stop

In our village,Siaya there was a Doctor who had worked in a public hospital for seven years.The doctor by the name Mr.Kakhali decided to open up his own clinic since he was being payed low salary that could not satisfy his needs.He changed up his mind not to open up his own clinic since the had no enough capital.He was tranferd in another hospital.There he was given authority to work as a doctor and also manage the hospital. The government sent in a lot of money with the help of community development that hospital since it was undeveloped.Mr.Kakhali then started misusing the money sent by the governmetn for his own use.He started employing student under 16 years misusing others especially the girls.Since he was alond and the number of patients was increasing he did not provide adequate medication.On realising this he was taken to the court and sacked for his misusing public resources and employing and misusing little students.This was a lesson for the whole community.
