Following is a press release from the chairman of CONAC
The Chairman of the National Anti-Corruption Commission of Cameroon, CONAC, has the honour to inform the public that a workshop to evaluate the level of implementation of the South Regional Anti-Corruption Plan of Action for 2017 and adopt possible strategies for 2018 will be held in Ebolowa, headquarters of the South Region, on August 3 and 4, 2017.
The event, to be presided at by the Governor of the South Region, in the presence of the Vice-chairman of CONAC, will take place at the Governor’s Office. It will bring together regional service inspectors, regional delegates, mayors, legal authorities such as magistrates, lawyers and notaries, forces of law and order, custom officials, leaders of civil society organizations, as well as political, traditional and religious dignitaries of the region.
During the two-day workshop, participants would review activities carried out to combat corruption in the course of the year 2017 and results obtained, analyse difficulties encountered and indicate possible actions to reinforce the fight against corruption in the South Region in the later part of 2017 and in 2018.
Participants will also receive skills on how to identify and break resistance in the fight against corruption, as well as how to lead change, reinforce ethics compliance and measure progress.
The main innovation will be an impromptu visit to some regional delegations to get first-hand information from users and officials on actions put in place to curb corruption.
