Some years ago a good friend of ours was called to the bar. At that time he told us about a professional goal to which he aspired. His aim? To be the most honest lawyer in Kenya! Anyone familiar with the situation in our country will agree that to have this kind of aspiration requires not only courage but a rare dose of integrity. Indeed, one of our news columnists, commenting on our moral decay a few years later, was to write: "Being an honest man in the Republic of Kenya is one of the most confoundingly difficult things a man can apply his mind to."1
