The CIAA has failed us

September 15, 2020 18:40 pm

This is the question people ask when the country’s anti-corruption watchdog fails on its duty to control corruption. They ask this when they see that the highest anti-graft body is being selective in its prosecution, sparing those with nexus to power centers, and witch-hunting those with minor cases of bribery. This is the question people ask when the corruption cases peak and yet the proven and suspected corrupt walk freely, when their corruption related deeds are not even investigated. We ask this question in this space with the hope and expectation that the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) lives up to its mandate, and that it emerges active and strong to combat corruption which is rampant from the center to the periphery.
