The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) says monitoring and evaluation of community development projects will reduce corruption in district councils.

ACB’s senior public education officer Catherine Nkhoma made the remarks during a Social Accountability Training workshop for area development committees (ADCs) from traditional authorities Makwangwala and Ganya and ACB clubs in Ntcheu District.

She urged the participants in different developments project to take a leading role in development projects in their communities for easy monitoring.

“ADCs and ACB clubs are like middlemen in the local councils. Most of them are not trained. So, we will conduct training nationwide on how to monitor and evaluate development projects in communities,” she said.

Nkhoma said corruption is evil and urged participants to resist and report it.

National Initiative for Civic Education officer Emmanuel Banda, who was also present during the training  said the meeting came at the right time when ADCs have begun their duties.

Upper Makwangwala ADC vice-chairperson Steven Gongonya commended ACB for the training and assured people that he would share the knowledge, skills and techniques with others.
