Transparency International Zimbabwe joined the world to commemorate International Anti-Corruption Day, which falls on 9 December every year.
The festivities involved four flash mobs in four different locations around Harare. (A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time and then quickly disperse for the purpose of artistic expression.)
The four flash mobs had a “No to Impunity” theme and involved plays, drama, quizzes and music.
We used flash mobs because of their crowd-pulling effect and the lasting impression they leave on participants.
The community representatives who were present noted that impunity remains the greatest hurdle to community development.
Speakers identified that the selective application of the law in the country motivates high-level government officials to siphon off public resources, knowing they are immune to arrest or prosecution.
