TOPIC: PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN ERADICATING CORRUPTION
The purpose of this activity was to explore and discuss corruption practices around us with the aim of identifying corruption related challenges that must be addressed in order to actualize the expected economic gains. Students were well prepared and expressed wonderfully. The work of students showed that the coming into prominence of such concepts as decentralization, accountability and transparency, human rights, rule of law and sustainable development have considerably influenced efforts to minimize corruption in the country.
To reduce corruption drastically students also illustrated, a number of fundamental changes must be brought about like: reducing the opportunities for corrupt transactions by cutting back the state's activities; emergence of new centres of power outside the bureaucracy; development of competitive party politics; institutional and process levels; strengthening of preventive structures and tightening of prosecuting techniques.
Overall the activity was beneficial as students shared their opinions and participated enthusiastically.
