Rwanda: Why We Need an Anti-Corruption Court

Rwanda: Why We Need an Anti-Corruption Court | Accountability | Scoop.it

The issue of corruption is attracting growing attention by the day and this country has not wavered in the fight against the vice, even with all the international accolades it has won on this issue.

The establishment of institutions like the Office of the Ombudsman, the Office of the Auditor General, and the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee, is seen as a strong resolve to tackle corruption across the board.

It is this resolve from the top that has inspired Rwandans to talk about corruption just like they would about the weather. Students in the anti-corruption clubs and local people in their village anti-corruption committees are all talking about the 'monster' that is corruption.

The just released 2012 Governance Scorecard by the Rwanda Governance Board rates the fight against corruption, ensuring transparency and accountability up there, at 77.1 per cent.
