Mozambique’s prime minister, Carlos Agostinho do Rosário, on Monday warned about the consequences of corruption, considering that the situation undermines the credibility of governments and threatens economic stability.
“Corruption undermines the credibility of governments,” he said during the celebrations of the International Day Against Corruption in Zambezia province, central Mozambique.
For him, in addition to discrediting governments, corruption opens space for economic instability, undermining integrity and social values.
“Corruption calls into question the moral values and integrity of society, which contributes to the proliferation of practices associated with organised crime,” Carlos Agostinho do Rosário added.
Data advanced on Monday showed that, in the last two years alone, about 2,000 disciplinary proceedings have been filed against officials and agents of the state in Mozambique, among which 205 culminated in layoffs and 104 in sackings.
The International Day Against Corruption was instituted in 2003 by the UN to make people aware of the importance of combating this type of crime.
