CSOs argued to train communities on Good Governance

Civil Society Organisations in Ruvuma region have been requested to train community members on good governance and monitor the implementation of the Public Procurement Act in the periphery areas that are economically poor and have unsound governance – leading to the intimidation of the people. This call was made by Mkongotema Ward Executive Officer, Polycarp Malekela when opening a training workshop on Good Governance and monitoring of the Procurement Act to 50 participants conducted at Mkongotema by Youth Cultural and Women Development Centre (YOCUWODE) through funds from The Foundation for Civil Society.

The training coordinator, Margreth Melkion, said that the training had targeted six wards whereas four wards have already been covered at Peramiho and Maposeni centers - with 100 people reached by the training - involving both ordinary people as well as village and ward leaders.

“The training is conducted following the realization of challenges facing the community on the ignorance of the Procurement Act and the ongoing corruption acts that resulted to the Songea District Council getting unqualified opinion,” she said and added that there is a need for the community to be trained and getting the knowledge so as to protect the country’s resources from being plundered by the corrupt officials
