TAWDE KHABARE: Watchdogs Question Govt’s Anti-Graft Strategy
The High Office of Oversight and Anti-Corruption (HOOAC) on Sunday criticized the Afghan government’s anti-corruption approach, saying the lack of a working strategy has resulted in a stalemate in terms of fighting the scourge.
Meanwhile, Integrity Watch Afghanistan (IWA) officials said the National Unity Government (NUG) has failed to outline an effective anti-corruption strategy despite the NUG leaders having pledged to the international community at the Brussels Summit that it would define an effective anti-corruption approach in the months that followed.
Afghan leaders pledged in October last year to outline the new anti-corruption strategy by June. Critics claim this deadline has not been met.
In this episode of Tawde Khabare, host Shahpoor Bakhtiar discusses the topic with the following guests:
• IWA chief Sayed Ekram Afzali
• Mohammad Sediq Patman, member of the New National Front of Afghanistan
• Dawa Khan Minapal, president’s deputy spokesman
