ZACC launches anti-corruption strategy steering committee

By ZBC Reporter
THE Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) has launched the National Anti-Corruption Strategy Steering Committee to establish a national consensus on how best to fight corruption.
Speaking during the virtual launch in Harare this Thursday, ZACC Chairperson Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo said the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS) is premised on the spirit and principles enshrined in the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), which requires member states develop and implement coordinated anti-corruption policies.
Commissioner Matanda-Moyo added that the Anti-Corruption Strategic Steering Committee has the mandate to ensure that the strategic objectives of NACS are achieved.
She also called on all sectors to come on board in the fight against graft.
“Article 5 of UNCAC requires member states to develop, implement and maintain effective, coordinated anti-corruption policies that promote the participation of society and reflect the principles of the rule of law.
“The anti-corruption policies should also include proper management of public affairs and property, integrity, transparency and accountability,” she said.
The NACS also support key national policies including Vision 2030 and the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP) and subsequent programmes which speak to an aggressive fight against all forms of corruption.
