oa De Rebus - Combatting corruption in the SADC



The SADC Lawyers' Association hosted a workshop late last year to highlight and discuss research into the implementationof the SADC Protocol against corruption by member states. Participants included lawyers from all over southern Africa and representatives from trade unions and non-governmental organisations. Corruption was described as a 'chronic disease' in the region by one of the participants and no country had been spared its negative impact, with corruption causing problems such as denying school children text books to presidents benefitting from multi-million dollar business deals.
