Francis Ben Kaifala, the Commissioner of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), has emphasized the importance of upholding integrity in social safety net payments and addressing malpractices within the Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM).

Speaking at a three-day GRM retreat for the projects unit held in Bo on August 9th, 2023, Kaifala reiterated the ACC’s commitment to collaborating with partners such as the World Bank, UNICEF, and SDF to ensure transparent and corruption-free processes.

During the retreat, Kaifala highlighted the significance of the GRM in supporting poverty reduction initiatives and facilitating the disbursement of social safety net payments to their intended beneficiaries.

He urged participants to exhibit a high level of professionalism in their roles to achieve the primary objective of the GRM, thereby ensuring that individuals receive their rightful entitlements.

Emphasizing a zero-tolerance stance on malpractices, Kaifala sent a clear message that any form of corruption or misconduct in the process will not be tolerated.

The Commissioner’s call to action underscores the dedication of the ACC to maintaining the integrity of social welfare programs and fostering a fair and accountable system for the benefit of the people.
