Fourth anti-graft strategy, plan in offing

DODOMA: THE government is expected to launch the fourth National Anti-corruption Strategy and Action Plan (NACSAP-IV), which seeks to come up with key priorities, strategies and targeted interventions to effectively tackle graft at all levels.

The official launching of the NACSAP is expected to be graced by President Samia Suluhu Hassan during the climax of the Integrity and Human Rights Day to be marked at the national level in the country’s capital, Dodoma this Sunday.

The National Anti-corruption Strategy and Action Plan is a comprehensive framework that outlines key priorities, strategies and targeted interventions to combat corruption effectively.

It includes preventative measures, such as strengthening anti-corruption institutions and mechanisms, promoting transparency and accountability in public administration and enhancing citizen participation in fighting corruption.

Furthermore, the strategy focuses on creating a culture of integrity by promoting ethical standards and values among public officials and citizens. It also aims to improve the effectiveness of law enforcement agencies and the judiciary in prosecuting and penalising corruption cases.

The government launched the week-long celebrations for the Integrity and Human Rights Day yesterday. The official launching was graced by the Minister for Justice and Constitution, Dr Pindi Chana, at an event that was preceded by a half marathon dubbed ‘Sepesha Rushwa Marathon,’ seeking to intensify massive campaign against corruption.

According to the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB), Director General, CP Salum Hamduni, there will be a series of activities ahead of the climax of celebrations on December 10.

The government of Tanzania has been marking the Integrity and Human Rights Day annually on December 10 as a way to assess efforts on the fight against corruption and to promote transparency, accountability, human rights and good governance.

In the speech read on his behalf by PCCB Director of Public Education, Joseph Mwaiswelo, Mr Hamduni said that other activities that will take place include the National Forum of stakeholders in concerted efforts to fight against corruption to be conducted today at Dodoma’s PSSSF conference hall.

“The forum will be officiated by the Minister of State in the President’s Office (Public Service Management and Good Governance), George Simbachawene,” he said.

Various topics regarding corruption, Integrity and accountability will be presented and discussed by stakeholders at the forum.

Between December 05 and 10, he added, stakeholders will gather at Nyerere Square grounds during the Public Service week, where several services will be provided including education on the responsibilities by various institutions in the rights and justice dispensation value chain.
