KIGALI - The Executive Secretary of the Rwanda Governance Advisory Council (RGAC), Prof. Anastase Shyaka, has announced that the country has made impressive strides in the fight against graft and is on the right path to become a corruption-free state.
According to Shyaka, Rwanda is leading in the fight against corruption in the region.
“At this pace, there is no doubt that Rwanda can catch up with Asian tigers in control of corruption …. If the trend is maintained, Rwanda can aspire to become a corruption-free society before 2020,” he said.
Shyaka added that various indexes conclude that Rwanda is making outstanding progress towards a corruption-free society.
“This situation results from several measures that have been put in place by the Government, including institutional setup, mindset change and adequate enforcement of rules and regulations that aim at completely eradicating corruption,” he added.
Rwanda’s ranking keeps on rising and has constantly overtaken several countries. Since 2006, the country has made a considerable step, a case in point, from 121 to 66, thus overtaking 55 countries in the world in five years alone.
