Last 7th of December, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (CONAC) launched activities in Ebolowa to mark the International Day of the fight against Corruption, celebrated every year since 2003 on the 9th of December.
This year’s theme of the Corruption international day is “20 years of the United Nations Convention against Corruption: uniting the world against corruption”. The National Anti-Corruption Commission (CONAC) has not remained indifferent to this impetus. It has just organised a seminar in Ebolowa workshop under the theme “Breaking the silence in the face of the ravages of corruption. Speak out”.
During the forty-eight hours of the training, the participants discussed a wide range of issues, such as maladministration, the new approach to preparing the contributions of public institutions to the report on the state of the fight against corruption in Cameroon, and the building of a culture of integrity within the institution, in the hope of putting an end to the plague, which affects all areas, impoverishing families, communities and the nation, and at times undermining social cohesion.
Ahead of the climax of the festivities on December 9, during an athletic walk along the streets of Ebolowa, the heads of the anti-corruption units of ministries, businesses, public institutions and decentralised local authorities where equipped to promote best practices for the management of public affairs.
