Corruption in its various forms is injurious and detrimental to economic growth, and has been identified as a key drawback in developing countries. As a result, governments all over the world have implemented a variety of policies to strengthen the battle against corruption. Despite adopting various anti-corruption policies, Kenyan corruption has been endemic and anti-corruption strategy falls short of international standards. The aim of this analysis was to see how resource allocation influences anti-corruption strategy execution at Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Kenya. A case study design was used in this research. Employees of EACC were the target population. Eighty-five EACC respondents were deemed appropriate. A questionnaire was used to gather data, which was then analyzed descriptively where mean, standard deviation and chi-square were computed with the help of SPSS. A pretest was conducted prior to collection of data. The pretest was conducted among nine employees of EACC from various departments in Nyeri. The study found that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission was underfunded. As a result, its ability to procure required resources such as enough employees and information technologies is limited. Chi-square analysis showed that resource allocation was significant. The study therefore recommended that the national assembly of Kenya should allocate more financial resources to EACC to enhance the capacity of the agency in fighting corruption.
