Project to curb corrupt practices in Geita takes off

A civil society organisation, Widows and Orphans Development Organisation (Wodeo), has launched a project that aims at combating corruption in Geita Region.At the cost of TZS 40 million, the 12-month project, funded by the Foundation for Civil Society, targets to reach over 2,000 residents and 75 government officials through seminars and other forms of training on good governance.


According to Mr Jackson Jonathan, who is the organisation’s project coordinator, the project was launched last month at Ihamilo and Kasamwa villages in Geita Municipality.


Elaborating further, an official from an organisation advocating for democracy and good governance (ADLG), Mr Jimmy Luhende, said residents in poor rural areas were the worst victims of corruption, which he said has been evidenced through soaring cases of land grabbing and property confiscation.“Corruption has been a normal thing for people seeking employment, political posts or legal services,” said Mr Luhende.
