ACB's Senior Public Education Officer, Jonathan Chisale told Zodiak Online that with the status quo, empowering local structures on report mechanism remains crucial against the same.

"People have legitimatized corruption in the country. It has become a habit for every individual to be involved in the vice a development which is worrying," Chisale said.

He has then challenged the citizenry to report any suspected corrupt practice to the bureau to act arguing whistleblowers are well protected.
