ACB Tips CSO Networks to Mainstream Corruption Issues
The Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) has urged civil society organization networks in the country to mainstream corruption issues in their programs to stamp out corruption.
Senior Public Education Officer for ACB, Andrew Ussi has told Zodiak Online, Monday in Phalombe that a vibrant civil society organization network can significantly help in the fight against corruption.
Ussi says some civil society organizations are vibrant in reporting complaints to ACB while some have been dormant for a long time.
He says for example, the Phalombe Civil Society Organization network has been dormant at a time they are supposed to represent voiceless people in the district.
“There are a lot of issues happening that require their attention, but the network is failing to represent the voiceless people,” said Ussi.
He has since appealed to the Phalombe Civil society organizations network to help in the fight against corruption.
Ussi made the remarks when Anti-Corruption Bureau trained Phalombe Civil Society Organizations Network on the role of organizations in the fight against corruption.
Vice chairperson for Phalombe Civil Society Organizations Network, Linda Alimoso described the meeting as an eye opener, saying through the training, the network will be vibrant in the fight against corruption.
