Rotary Clubs in Malawi, Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) and Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) have joined forces to instill discipline among Malawians to prevent Cashgate, albino killings and other immoral practices in the country.
The three institutions have since launched a project called Integrity that is targeting secondary schools.
Being piloted by Lilongwe Rotary Club, the project seeks to instill ethics, integrity and patriotism in the students so that when they get to the industry, they should desist from immoral practices.
Speaking on Saturday during the induction of Mzuzu Rotary Club president at Sunbird Mzuzu, Rotarian Dean Lungu said issues of Cashgate, albino attacks and other malpractices happening in the country are a result of lost integrity.
“As you are probably aware, we seem to be losing out in terms of moral standards and responsibilities as Malawians. I believe this project will try to bring back our dignity,” he said.
RBM spokesperson Mbane Ngwira yesterday confirmed that the bank is a partner in the project.
He said RBM was impressed with the idea of instilling morals and ethics among Malawians and it injected K6 million to start up the project.
Said Ngwira: “The project is starting with six secondary schools, two from each region.”
ACB spokesperson EgrittaNdala also confirmed that the bureau is party to the project which she described as a prevention measure for corruption.
