Cameroon to tackle corruption for economic growth


Cameroon will step up anti-corruption efforts to facilitate economic growth, the country’s Anti-Corruption Commission (CONAC) said on Wednesday.

“We will carry out physical-financial intervention activities for the search for evidence or denunciation received or initiated by CONAC. 2024 will therefore be a year of great commitment in the fight against corruption,” CONAC President Dieudonne Massi Gams told reporters.

Cameroon wants to be corruption-free and citizens need to work with CONAC to fight corrupt activities in all sectors, he added.

Last year, the anti-graft agency reported that about 44 billion xaf (72 million U.S. dollars) was lost to corruption in 2021.

Cameroon has arrested several top-ranking government officials since President Paul Biya launched an anti-graft campaign in 2004.
