With the aim of supporting ongoing efforts to make Rwanda a corruption free country, the Private Sector Federation (PSF) is working on code of business ethics, that will be used as a too to discourage corruption within the business community.
Molly Rwigamba, in charge of Capacity Building and Employment at PSF, said in an interview that the development of the code of business ethics will also lead to an enabling business environment.
According to Rwigamba, the move will fight bid rigging, mostly cited during the tendering process.
The code of business ethics comprises of sets of measures to be taken against any individual within the private sector.
“We have recommended an operational audit where PSF will be auditing various business entities and embark on sensitizing private sector about this code of business conduct in collaboration with the Office of the Ombudsman,” said Rwigamba.
When contacted, Tito Rutaremera, the Ombudsman, said an anti-corruption Advisory Council, put in place to champion the fight against graft, would soon meet members of PSF to discuss the code.
