Fighting Corruption
Mandate

The statutory responsibility of Public Education is to mobilize the public by educating them through various initiatives and programmes and to enlist and foster public support in combating corruption. The programmes are divided according to the three target groups of the youth, public servants and the general public.

Raboammaaruri Campaign

Raboammaaruri campaign is for primary school pupils. This is a program directed at inculcating the spirit of moral uprightness in children at their tender age. The campaign is by way of a mascot that preaches honesty and accountability.

Anti-Corruption Clubs

The clubs run in both junior and senior secondary schools. Their main objectives are for the youth to disseminate anti-corruption information to their peers, to participate meaningfully in social and economic activities and to improve the youth understanding of ethics. The activities of the clubs culminate in an annual congress at the end of the year at which clubs share experiences with a view to assisting each other to run the clubs effectively

School Curriculum

Corruption concept has also been infused in the school curriculum to be examinable in our formal education system. This is a breakthrough in the campaign against corruption for the youth of Botswana. The youth also participate in essay writing and debates at which activities they interact with others and also share their views on their understanding of issues of corruption and how they can meaningfully contribute in the fight against the scourge.

Publications

Publications are designed with specific messages for the public officers. Like the Imprest retirement brochure. The general public is targeted through Kgotla Meetings, District and Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions, Radio and Television shows, Advertorials, Press Releases, brochures, booklets and the Annual Report.

Publicity in the form of posters, stationary and clothing that bear anti corruption messages. Radio and television programmes are also designed to spread the anti-corruption message to public officers so that they shun corruption and are able to ward off any temptation to engage in acts of corruption.
