Nkhata Bay District Institutional Integrity Committee (IIC) has urged government institutions in the district to champion integrity when executing their duties to improve service delivery.
IIC member Benford Mwakayuni made the appeal on Wednesday during a district executive committee meeting.
He urged heads of government ministries, departments and agencies to ensure that integrity is at the core of their duties to ensure transparency and accountability.
“You have to be transparent and accountable to enhance service delivery,” said Mwakayuni.
He said all Malawians have a role to play in the fight against corruption by ensuring integrity, transparency and accountability among public officers for smooth service delivery.
“People in the communities should ensure that those heading public offices do their work in a clear and decent manner,” he said.
In his remarks, Nkhata Bay district water development officer Alex Mwakikunga commended the committee for the meeting, saying integrity enhances management of public resources even in procurement of materials and general service delivery at institutional level.
The IIC was formed courtesy of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to promote integrity in the day-to-day operations of institutions at local level and has been in operation since 2009.
