Anti-graft conference

Date: 01 Mar 2007
More than 300 people representing African Parliaments, anti-corruption agencies and civil society are gathered on the East Rand to consolidate the continent’s anti-corruption agenda. They are attending a three-day Africa Forum on Fighting Corruption as a prelude to April’s Global Forum on Fighting Corruption and Safeguarding Integrity. The forum’s main objective is consolidation of the various anti-corruption initiatives in place continent-wide. Public Service Minister Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi heads the National Forum. Delegates are, via a Ministers’ forum, workshops and discussions, attempting to consolidate anti-corruption initiatives so “a common understanding of corruption on the continent and globally can be reached,” her Ministry said.
