The Minister of Education, Dr David Namwandi launched the Anti-
Corruption Commission (ACC) education manual for teachers today.
The manual in brief covers aspects such as harmful impact of
corruption on human development, the economy, essential public
service delivery, democracy, education and health.
Speaking at the launch, Namwandi said corruption is a global disease
and challenge. He said it affects the quality of education through ghost
marks and sex for marks.
“As it is correctly stated in the manual, corruption hampers economic
growth and development. It also widens the gap between the have and
have not’s. It also affects service delivery. But we cannot achieve this
without our teachers-our foot soldiers. This manual was specifically
compiled to guide our esteemed teachers, especially the life skills
teachers,” he said.
