The President of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (CONAC), Dieudonné Masi Gams, announced this last October 27, during the presentation of the 12th report on the state of the fight against corruption.
Cameroon is expected to have lost around CFAF 4.62 billion as a result of corruption and related crimes during the year 2022. Compared with losses of CFAF 43.947 billion in 2021, this represents a decrease of CFAF 39.324 billion (-89.5%).
These figures were announced on 27 October 2022 by the President of the National Anti-Corrupt Practices Commission (Conac), Dieudonné Masi Gams, during the solemn presentation of the 12th report on the state of the anti-corrupt practices in Cameroon in 2022. According to the report, this financial loss is determined on the basis of the investigative missions carried out by the Conac, as well as the financial convictions resulting from the decisions of the Council for Budgetary and Financial Discipline (CDBF), the Supreme State Audit Office (Consupe) and the Special Criminal Court (TCS).
The fines imposed by the CDCR and the Financial and Economic Disciplinary Council (CDFE and COE respectively) amounted to CFAF499m and CFAF249m. The most corrupt sectors are followed by local government, financial affairs, education and contracting.
