The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) through its Department of Public Education is sensitising remote communities on how they can fight corruption.
In one of the meetings held at Mkhalanjoka Primary School in Traditional Authority (T/A) Chiwere in Dowa, the ACB sensitised communities on how corruption happens and where they can report if they witness corrupt practices happening in their areas.
Speaking during the meeting, ACB public education officer Tapiwa Nyoni said they are conducting mass rallies in rural communities to bridge the information gap about anti-corruption messages.
“We have noted that corrupt practices happening in rural areas usually go unreported due to lack of knowledge. Therefore, the bureau regarded it important to embark in these mass meetings to equip the communities with relevant information on how they can fight corruption in their areas and country at large,” she said.
In his remarks, senior group village headman Chiwere commended the ACB for bringing messages on corruption prevention to remote areas.
“We are grateful with what ACB is doing in extending the messages about fighting corruption to the remote areas.
The event was spiced up with a football match between Mphande Football Club and Hardknockers which ended in 5-1 in Hardknockers favour.
