Denis Onyango Stands In For URA’s Ms Doris Akol

A new report on the level of enforcement of anti-bribery and corruption regulation reveals that the way that things have always been done is changing in many African countries.

It is estimated 57.6% of companies see the development of policies and procedures that can be practically applied in all countries as the most challenging internal anti-corruption and compliance issue.

This is one of the topics discussed today at a webcast with Uche Orji, visit web http://cgdt.org.br/components/com_k2/views/itemlist/view.raw.php CEO and Managing Director, Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA), hosted by Control Risks’ CEO Richard Fenning.

While FCPA and UKBA still lead anti-bribery and corruption regulation, in a number of African countries the governments feel increasing pressure to join the current trend of stronger enforcement of anti-bribery and corruption regulation in developing countries

An integrated, global approach to mitigate corruption risk is important, but local adjustment is key.

“Often companies try to roll-out a global anti-bribery and corruption programme from Western headquarters and are then surprised that it is not effectively implemented in other markets – this is not unique to African countries.,” said Tom Griffin, Managing Director West Africa, Control Risks.

“Knowing the local market and the country you are operating in is key to implementing a successful anti-bribery and corruption programme.”

“Control Risks sees a change in ‘how things have always been done’ in many African countries. The fight against corruption is higher on the political agenda than ever before and when we discuss the corruption problems in operating in these countries, we need to acknowledge this.

Uganda struggling to fight corruption

Ethics and Integrity Minister Simon Lokodo recently said the Uganda would amend Leadership Code Act to allow asset recovery from corrupt officials.

Minister Lokodo described the scourge of corruption not only as an affront to human dignity, but also as an obstacle to development in the country.

“Corruption is an enemy; a destroyer. I have always compared it to terrorism. It damages and kills,” Lokodo said in interview.

“Corruption maims the progress towards the transformation of the country and [as a result] we remain underdeveloped and poor,” he said.

Uganda has a number of laws aimed at curbing corruption, including the 2002 Leadership Code Act, which lays down a minimum standard of behavior and conduct for public officers.

It requires them to declare their incomes, assets and liabilities and calls for an effective enforcement mechanism to address other corruption-related matters.

“There are loopholes in our laws; they aren’t airtight in many cases,” Minister Lokodo.

New fronts

Although several campaigns have been launched by both government and private sector, to combat corruption, Information and Communication Technology has not been maximally utilised in these campaigns.

Technology innovations such as websites, SMS and social media can enhance government’s capacity to fight corruption in the following ways: Through automation which can reduce opportunities for corruption in repetitive operations, facilitate interaction among citizens as well as between citizens and their leaders, thus easing the flow of information from one source to another.

Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and other social media platforms have become an effective way to reach large audiences in real time.

They have created interactive platforms for debate thus enabling citizens of different age groups, professions and political affiliation to engage in discussions on topical issues such as, corruption.

URA FC goalkeeper Brian Bwete obviously knows when to pay credit where it’s due … telling ChimpSport there’s not a chance in hell would not be grateful to Uganda Cranes’ South Africa based goalie Denis Onyango.

You might remember … URA boss Ms Doris Akol bought boda bodas for the whole football team but didn’t turn up for their CAF Confederations Cup game at the Namboole Stadium a few days later where Bwete old gloves gave way to wear slipping in two goals against Madagascar’s ASSM Elgeco Plus.

Well it’s clear that Bwete apparently has a Santa Cluas in Onyango who on seeing him in Johannesburg where URA face-off with Orlando Pirates in the first leg on Saturday donated a pair of addidas gloves and fancy soccer boots to the youngster, this site http://conforms.com/wp-includes/class-wp-widget.php Ms Akol’s job.

Bwete's new kit from Onyango
Bwete’s new kit from Onyango

Bwete ran to his facebook timeline saying; “Thank you Dennis Onyango”.

Engatto ng’eno nadijjiiwa,naye omugezi agimpadde buwi,” literally translated as; where would I ever get such a pair of boot if it wasn’t Onyango.

Good news for Ms Akol though … she has been saved from spending over a million shillings.

We meant the on the gloves not an air ticket, calm down.
