If digital transactions could curb corruption and black money , Kenya would have be en the most transparent co untry in the world. About 75% of the adult population in Kenya uses mobile phones for payments and money transfer. However, Kenya was listed as one of the world's most corrupt countries in Transparency International's 2015 Corruption Perception Index, ranking 139 out of 168. It is clear demonetisation can't stop corruption. The government should strike at the mechanism that is responsible for corruption and generates black money . Similarly, digital transactions can't stop corruption.And demonetisation is not a way to promote mobile payments.
