Kasama District Commissioner, Elizabeth Goma says the new dawn administration has a clear agenda for fighting corruption in the country.

Mrs. Goma explained that government is determined to fight corruption as it not only injures the people’s freedoms but also destroys the country’s development plans.

She stated that corruption is also directly linked to poverty adding that that is why it should be eradicated.

The District Commissioner stated that lack of accountability and transparency are also among the main factors that contribute to the rapid deterioration of governance and weakening of state institutions.

She further called for the need to fight corruption in an inclusive manner to enhance accountability in the management of public affairs at all levels from the ward to the national level.

“Fighting corruption in an all-inclusive manner will contribute to public financial management thereby protecting public resources, “She added.

Mrs. Goma said this when she officially opened a stakeholder’s consultative meeting on the formulation of the revised National Anti-Corruption Policy (NACP) in Kasama.

She has said government has since taken an all-inclusive approach in the formulation of the policy by inviting all stakeholders.

“Various institutions of both government and non-governmental institutions have been invited to this consultative meeting because corruption is everyone’s fight,” Mrs. Goma said.

The District Commissioner further urged stakeholders to participate freely in the meeting for the formulation of the revised National Anti-Corruption policy.

  1. Iwe bush DC, what would you know about a clear agenda when current corruption is going on unabated while pursuing political opponents for past crimes…. not a problem but it is more important to arrest even those currently serving in cabinet.

  2. This is one DC who has no idea of what is going on in the country. UPND is in power for TEN months, and corruption is back to PF levels: the police is back at the roadblocks demanding bribes, getting a driving licence costs a fortune extra, etc. NOTHING is happening and Edgar China Lungu is laughing his head off!

  3. #2 The constable collects the money, passes part to the local mwami, local mwami sends part to district mwami, provincial mwami, lastly the national mwami. So how can road blocks come to an end? The minister responsible has suddenly disappeared from the public.

  7. Tikki bowman is man enough to apologise for his language. Note that his apology is not in seeking forgiveness for your perceived allegations of wrong doing. He is still going to fight his cases and win. You wouldn’t know what manners are hence to you and your fellow ignorant upnd cadres you cannot fathom an apology. You are worse than a dog

  8. Bowman ayambako bootlegging. Exactly what made Lungu love him and give him a job. Perhaps it might work on HH too!
