AFCAC launches anti-corruption campaign ‘zero afghani’

AFCAC launches anti-corruption campaign ‘zero afghani’

Apr 11, 2019 - 18:55

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok):  The Afghans Coordination Against Corruption (AFCAC ) on Thursday launched a campaign “zero afghani” to encourage people not to pay bribes and prevent corruption in the country.

AFCAC chief Sadaqat Ali Zia told a press conference here that their campaign “zero afghani” was aimed at motivating people to discourage corruption and expose government workers who sought bribe in return for delivery of services.

Zia said corruption and bribery had reached the peak in the country and their campaign was aimed at identifying corrupt officials and exposing them. He said they were in contact with all departments about their anti-corruption campaign.

He said they had initially launched their campaign in Kabul and Behsud, Dara-i-Noor and Sararud districts of eastern Nangarhar province. They would distribute “zero afghani note” in each street and house.

Zia said since 2001 Afghanistaninfo-icon had received billions of dollars in aid for rebuilding, but there was no system and the money was wasted.

AFCAC programs in-charge Ihsanullah Hikmat said if the money Afghanistan received during the past 18 years had been distributed to the Afghans, each person would have pocketed 30000 to 40000 dollars.

He said the unity government had taken some steps against corruption but not as required.

National Procurement Committee’s contracts oversight department head Syed Ajmal said the committee was established in order to prevent corruption in projects. He said they had published details of 1830 contracts on their website in order to share them with people.

He said the national procurement committee would cooperate AFCAC in its campaign against corruption.
