Positive results in ‘Phones against Corruption’

The concept uses free-of-charge text messages to the Digicel number ‘16321’.

The Department launched the roll out of the project to include 14 provincial governments and 30 national government agencies.

Secretary Dr Ken Ngangan said since the launch in July 2014, the initiative has seen positive results uncovering over 500 cases.
