When questioned about the importance of asset declaration in combating corruption, Samura emphasized that both he and his cabinet would declare their assets once he assumes the presidency.

Furthermore, Samura stressed the need for a robust political will to appoint individuals with impeccable reputations to manage the Anti-Corruption Commission.

He emphasized that the commissioner should not be subject to political influence, ensuring independence and integrity.

In conclusion, Samura highlighted that implementing such measures would establish the proper channels to combat corruption effectively.
