Graft costs Africa business - Kagame
KIGALI - For Africa to attract more business and move forward in its on-going transformation, the continent must embrace good governance that promotes accountabiltility, President Paul Kagame told a conference of Ombudsmen and anti-corruption officials yesterday. The President said that graft “renders doing business very costly and leaves our continent globally uncompetitive.” “The work of the office of the ombudsman and other anti-corruption institutions on our continent should make every effort to win the struggle against any behaviour and activity that undermines Africa’s efforts to escape the traps of poverty and aid dependency and the resulting indignity which, if we let it, will become irreversibly synonymous with our continent,” the President said.
