Yaounde: CONAC members go down to the streets to sensitise population

After the first edition of this campaign which took place on the 9th of December 2016, the second edition of the anti-corruption fight came up on the 6th of July 2017, during which teams of the commission filled streets in Yaounde.

The anti-corruption commission had been receiving complaints from many people especially those of the economic sector. That is why they decided to face the people themselves and school them on how they should reacted in corruption situations. They all had t-shirts with their mark labelled on them, making the team members identifiable by every passerby.

Shop keepers and vendors took everything they were told seriously. They vowed never to allow tax collectors treat them just anyhow they wanted; Levying taxes on them more than what they are supposed to pay. They were rigorously assured by the CONAC members “pay just all of your taxes and nothing more. If the person insists on you paying more or threatens you, call the National Anti-Corruption Commission using the numbers 22 22 03 727 and a team will arrive immediately to your rescue” said the CONAC workers.

This did not end up only in the streets as the Commission equally headed to hospitals as well as Ministries and Delegations in the administrative quarters. The population was advised to do nothing but their jobs and leave the rest to CONAC.
