As one way of enhancing collaboration in raising awareness in the fight against corruption in the country, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Civic Education and National Unity.
Speaking during the signing ceremony in Lilongwe, ACB Director General Reyneck Matemba said the MoU is milestone towards disseminating anti-corruption messages to the masses through the Ministry.
“This understanding to work together is very important as it will help to disseminate anti-corruption messages to various members of the public through the Ministry.
“With the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS II) under implementation, the people out there need to understand their role in implementing NACS II,” said Matemba.
He added that the graft bursting has limited personnel and resources but with the collaboration with the Ministry, there will be proper coordination towards the fight against the vice.
And on his part, Minister of Civic Education and National Unity Timothy Mtambo said the MoU will help in mobilising the citizenry to report corrupt practices in their communities.
“It is envisaged that the MoU will help in encouraging the public to engage in positive activism against corrupt practices in order to create an ethical culture and morality in the country.
“It is also expected that activities, under the MoU, will ensure public adherence to democratic principles of accountability and transparency as well as effective service delivery in all sectors of the country’s economy,” said Mtambo.
