Tanzania’s anti-corruption watchdog on Tuesday vowed to stop electoral fraud in the forthcoming October 2020 general elections.
“We will stop electoral fraud before, during and after the general elections,” said John Mbungo, the Acting Director General of the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB).
He said PCCB will leave no stone unturned toward the investigation of corrupt candidates or political parties in the course of the electoral process, adding that offenders will face the full force of law.
“PCCB has started educating the public and other electoral stakeholders on how to conduct a clean election devoid of corruption practices,” he said on his official visit to Ruangwa district in Lindi region.
In April 2019, Tanzanian Minister for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation Palamagamba Kabudi warned individuals and political parties against involvement in electoral fraud in the 2020 general elections.
Kabudi urged PCCB to deal accordingly with individuals or political parties implicated in electoral fraud. Enditem
