LACC CHAIR HIGHLIGHTS MEDIA’S VITAL ROLE IN ANTI-CORRUPTION EFFORTS

Date:

MONROVIA – On Thursday, May 15, Cllr. Alexandra K. Zoe, Executive Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), emphasized the indispensable role of the media in the fight against corruption. Speaking at a training workshop for investigative journalists, Zoe highlighted the media’s critical function in exposing corrupt practices and scrutinizing government operations.

The workshop was part of the LACC-USAID Media Engagement Project, a collaborative initiative designed to enhance the capabilities of journalists in uncovering and reporting corruption. The project is a tripartite framework involving the Center for Media Studies & Peace Building, Liberia Media for Democratic Initiative, USAID/Internews, and the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission. This partnership employs a three-pronged approach consisting of training, radio talk shows, and community media forums.

Cllr. Zoe underscored the media’s power in “amplifying, accentuating, elevating, and magnifying the voice of anti-graft institutions.” She stressed that a well-informed and vigilant media is crucial for holding public officials accountable and ensuring transparency in government activities.

By equipping journalists with the necessary skills and knowledge, the LACC-USAID Media Engagement Project aims to foster a more informed and engaged public, thereby strengthening the overall fight against corruption in Liberia.
