ACB DG Urges Private Sector Involvement in Combating Corruption
In a bid to bolster the fight against corruption in Malawi, Martha Chizuma, the Director General of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), on Friday urged the private sector to take an active role in combating corruption during the Anti-Corruption Day event organized by Castel Malawi. This call to action underscores the significance of collaborative efforts between government bodies and private enterprises to realize Malawi's vision outlined in its 2063 blueprint.
The 2023 Anti-Corruption Day event, themed 'Together towards a Corruption-Free Malawi 2063,' served as a platform for Chizuma to emphasize the pivotal role of private sector engagement in the ongoing battle against corruption.
Chizuma also highlighted the necessity of concerted efforts from all sectors to curb corrupt practices and achieve the national goals set for 2063.
"Collaboration between the public and private sectors is indispensable in our quest to combat corruption effectively and achieve our aspirations outlined in the 2063 blueprint," she said.
Gloria Zimba, the Human Resource and Corporate Affairs Director of Castel Malawi, echoed Chizuma's sentiments, reaffirming the company's steadfast commitment to eradicating corruption on all fronts.
Zimba emphasized the importance of instilling anti-corruption values within the company's culture and involving employees in the fight against malpractices.
"Our dedication to fostering a corruption-free environment is unwavering. We believe in actively engaging our workforce to uphold ethical standards and contribute to the nation's vision for a corruption-free Malawi by 2063," said Zimba.
As Malawi strives to realize its aspirations for a corruption-free society by 2063, the event which saw the company storm the streets of Blantyre in a big walk served as a catalyst for discussions on practical strategies and initiatives to promote transparency, integrity, and accountability within both the public and private sectors.
