Transparency International Zambia Chapter President Rueben Lifuka has been re-election as Vice Chairperson of the Transparency International (TI) global Board of Directors.
TI-Z Executive Director Maurice Nyambe congratulate Mr Lifuka on the successful renewal of his mandate, and says the board has no doubt that he will continue to fly the Zambia flag high in the global fight against corruption.
Mr Nyambe said Mr Lifuka has spearheaded far reaching governance reforms that have positioned the TI movement for greater impact at different levels of the fight against corruption across the globe.
He said that the renewal of Mr Lifuka’s mandate is a recognition of the efforts that TI-Z continues to make in the fight against corruption in Zambia.
Mr Nyambe said such recognition puts us as a country in the spotlight when it comes to issues of corruption and good governance.
The newly elected TI Board, which is chaired by Argentine Dr Delia Ferreira Rubio and comprises members from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, North America and Africa, will provide strategic direction to the global anti-corruption movement for the next three years.
” We therefore wish to renew our call to the Zambian government and other stakeholders to accelerate efforts to fight corruption and promote good governance in Zambia, not just to protect our resources but also to ensure
our good standing in the international community. TI-Z remains committed to collaborating with
different stakeholders in our quest to eradicate corruption from Zambia, and our presence in these global
spaces gives us greater resolve to succeed,” he said.
