Corruption is a cancer that erodes citizens' confidence in their government, wastes money that should be invested in the long-term development of the country, and ultimately undermines human rights by reinforcing social inequality and perpetuating poor living conditions.
Citizens can and should play a central role in curbing corruption. Citizen participation is critical for strengthening institutions and building a more democratic system. As part of this effort, citizens must be willing to identify and report corruption, thereby placing pressure on the government to prosecute and punish such offenses.
President Obiang has proposed the creation of an Accountability Office to fight corruption. If created, this agency could provide certain benefits to Equatoguineans, but more can and must be done to build a better democracy and to fight corruption in the country.
With this in mind, EG Justice has initiated the Stop Corruption campaign.
The campaign aims to root out corruption and promote transparency in public agencies and government institutions. By identifying concrete instances of corruption, we can highlight the need for government reform and isolate the specific sectors most in need of such reform.
The goals of the campaign are:
