Written by Deckson N.

On the occasion of the World Day against this scourge, which was celebrated on 9 December 2016, a caravan traveled around the city to urge people to denounce the acts.

The 13th edition of the World Anti-Corruption Day was celebrated on Friday 9 December 2016 under the theme: “United against corruption“. By joining the world community to celebrate this feast, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (CONAC) traveled last Friday, to the arteries of the city of Yaounde.

According to Le Messager on Monday 12 December 2016, the objective of CONAC was to raise awareness about denunciations against the scourge. In order to do so, four teams visited the field, in particular at bus stations where road users and other actors in the road safety chain were called to be aware of the harms of corruption on the roads in society. It will therefore be a matter for them to denounce the various abuses they are subjected to during roadside checks.

In the same vein, the caravan went to school and university campuses, notably at the African Institute of Computer Science in Yaounde, the University of Ngoa-Ekelle, the Lycée General Leclerc, among others. According to the newspaper, CONAC has sensitized young people to their move in anti-corruption behavior.

In addition, a stop was made at the central hospital, general and Gynecological obstetrics of Yaounde with the main objective: to build the staff of these hospital formations on the care of the sick without taking into account the bribes.

Dieudonné Massi Gams, President of CONAC, said that “the fight against corruption can be won if a critical mass is created in all sectors of social life. In carrying out this campaign, a mass of whistleblowers will emerge, “he said.
