Nepotism refers to a practice of granting effective favours to one's relatives and kins (Liu, Eubanks and Chater, 2015). This benefit could be given in various fields such as politics, business, etc. However, there are various theories which is associated with reduction in such practices within an organisation. One such theory is Competencies' Theory which sets up various parameters for competencies in terms of team, change, ethical, communication and culture (Nepotism, employees’ competencies and firm performance, 2019). This theory is assistive in helping to reduce nepotism practices within the organisation.

National Culture: According to the culture of Tanzania, hiring individuals who are relatives or have connection with influential people of the country is considered quite normal as well as legal. A major reason for Tanzanian Culture in supporting nepotism is because there is a high rate of unemployment within the nation, local individuals expect relationship or friendship within organisations to ensure higher priority while consideration.

Leadership: As per the case, leadership within Hydro Generation promotes Nepotism. Throughout the case study, there are various instances which reflected Steinberg being aware about Jones' hiring practices and even disliked the same, however, there were no attempts took by him to stop the doing.
