This study’s objective was to assessthe challenges of curbing corruption in Kenya especially over the period from 2008 to 2012 with a focus on how the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has positioned itself to overcome those challenges. In order to achieve the objectives of this study - to examine the challenges the anti-graft agency is facing in curbing corruption in Kenya –data was collected through the use of questionnaires, interviews, literature searches and observations. The research established that EACC faces a number of challenges ranging from lack of political will and government commitment to lack of prosecutorial powers to be able to management any given case from beginning to its logical conclusion.From the study it is also evident that it takes time, reliable political will and public support to succeed in the war against corruption. The study recommends that the fight against corruption can be pursued in phases where it graduates from investigation and prosecution to education and prevention. Curbing corruption, also, should be a collective and inclusive effort.
