1. Issue 6 Volume 29 Oct. 2018 T he US and UK envoys to Sierra Leone have paid separate courtesy visits to the Commissioner of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC), Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. The US Ambassador to Sierra Leone, Maria Brewer paid her visit on Monday 24th September, 2018, whilst the UK High Commissioner Guy Warrington’s came two days after. The two visits centred on cooperation and support in the fight against corruption. In her statement, the US Ambassador encouraged the ACC to remain steadfast by ensuring that no sacred cows exist in the fight against corruption. She particularly underscored the need for the Commission to ring the alarm on corrupt practices under this current regime as and when they occur. Evident by the recent joint passport scam operation that was successfully undertaken on 12th September 2018 by the two institutions, the Ambassador assured of her continued support to the ongoing fight against corruption - a fight she Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala Esq and Ambassador Maria E.

New CSO partners in the fight against corruption at a one - day training workshop organized by ACC Awareness Raising Event for SSN Beneficiaries at the Number Two Community T he Commissioner of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) has called on the youth of West and Central Africa to “turn long - held aspirations into concrete and authoritative actions” by resisting corruption and helping in combating the scourge. Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. made the statement whilst delivering the keynote address at the West and Central Africa Regional Youth Consultation Meeting organised by the African Union in Senegalese city of Dakar from 5 th - 7 th September, 2018. The Commissioner was talking on the theme ‘Leveraging Youth Capacities for the Fight against Corruption in Africa’ “ There are clear nexuses between corruption and poverty in Africa, corruption and diseases; corruption and illiteracy; corruption and wars; corruption and bad governance, unsustainable economic growth, peace, security, and the stability of the continent,” he said. The ACC Commissioner said many a time, young people, Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. delivering the keynote address at the West and Central Africa Regional Youth who make up 60 percent of the continent’s population, are the victims of the consequences of the scourge, calling on the audience not to allow this “cancerous infection to continue to stunt our continent’s growth ” Mr. Kaifala however said that, all is not gloomy; and therefore called on well - meaning citizens of the continent to join those pushing for change of the status quo and help in eradicating the scourge. The Commissioner said young people should be educated on corruption prevention and eradication techniques to enable them play a greater role in the anti - corruption campaign. He said this can be done through both formal and informal educational institutions, as well as civil society and community based organizations. “ The AU Advisory Board on Corruption should take the leadership in defining the broad educational policy framework and setting the blueprint,” he said. He also called on the Board to expand its coverage and relevance across the continent.

Page 4 Page 9 T he Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday 28 th August, 2018 organised a farewell ceremony in honour of the former Director of Administration, Desmond Johnson, who was retiring from the Commission after eighteen years of service. The event was held on his sixtieth birthday. Speaking at the ceremony, the Deputy Commissioner of the ACC Shollay Davies described Mr. Johnson as a true friend of the Commission, who has served the Commission and the country very well. Mr. Davies said it is good for current staff of the ACC to learn from the commitment and steadfastness to work demonstrated by the former Director of Administration. The Director of Human Resource Yatta Katta described Mr. Johnson as someone who was very meticulous and hardworking. She said Mr. Johnson also demonstrated a high level of integrity throughout his time with the Commission. Responding, the former Admin Director reminisced his time with the Commission, noting that he was proud to say that he was one of the first staff of the institution. He described his time at the Commission as remarkable in spite of the few challenges he faced. Mr. Johnson said even though he is leaving the Commission, his heart and mind will always be with the Commission. Mr. Johnson was presented a plaque by the Deputy Commissioner. The former Director of Public Education and Outreach, Koloneh Sankoh is now the Director of Administration. Patrick Sandi has been promoted as Director of Public Education and Outreach, whilst Alhassan Kargbo now occupies the position of Deputy Director. Deputy Commissioner Shollay Davies presents a plaque to the former Director of Administration Desmond Johnson B uilding partnership to ensure a robust fight against corruption is one of the mandates of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC). The Commission exercises this by partnering with both government and non - governmental organisations. This has seen the Commission signing memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with several worthy partners. On Tuesday 11th September 2018 the Commission signed an MoU with the Civil Society Consortium on Community Accountability and Service Delivery at the Commission’s Conference Room, 3 Gloucester Street, Freetown. The objective of the MoU is to enhance bilateral relationship and cooperation with the consortium in the fight against corruption in the country. In his statement, the Commissioner of ACC, Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. described the ceremony as a new era in the anti - corruption campaign. He said, the President Maada Bio has declared war against corruption; and staff of the Commission are soldiers in that fight; adding that partnering with CSOs is a way of collaborating with allies to win the fight. "There can be no better ally to the fight against corruption than civil society," he noted. The ACC Commissioner said that he is pleased that CSOs have shown enormous interest in supporting the Commission in the fight. He assured the Consor- tium of the Commission’s commitment to cooperate and collaborate with them and assist them with everything needed in the fight. Mr. Kaifala informed the audience that the Commission is limited in personnel and resources, noting that signing a pact is an extension of the staffing of the ACC which means, hundreds of men and women working in civil societies organizations, will serve as public education officers and investigators to disseminate anti - corruption messages and bring feedbacks from the communities. In his address, the Deputy Commissioner ACC, Shollay Davies said, the signing ceremony is a means of cementing the Commission's relationship with the Consortium. He stated that the consortium is made up of five institutions; Accountability Now, Child Welfare Society - Sierra Leone, Health for All Coalition, Center for Health, Democracy and Development, and Child Advocacy Network on Climate Change and the Environment. Mr. Davies said that the Commission always conducts due diligence before entering into partnership with any institution. He said the Commission is satisfied with findings of the due diligence conducted which show that the Consortium is credible and has been in the business of advocacy for a long time now.

Statements were also delivered by the DFID Governance Adviser, Markus Weimer and the Director General, Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) - Ansu S. Tucker. Submission of the report to DFID and the Director - General HRMO climaxed the occasion . Contd. From pg.3 Speaking at the ceremony, the National Coordinator of the Consortium William Sao Lamin described the MoU as a marriage which they are determined to treat very seriously. He said that they have over 150 community based organisations across the country, stressing that the anti - graft campaign is not a one man’s business. He called on the Commission to provide capacity building programmes for their staff especially on the work of the Commission, to enable them communicate anti - corruption information at village, chiefdom, district, regional and national levels. Key provisions of the MoU include; commitment to provide reg- u l a r a n d t i m e l y f e e d b a c k s o n p r o j e c t a c t i v i t i e s , i n f o r m a t i o n s h a r- ing, ensuring transparency and open practice and to collaborate in mainstreaming the tenets of transparency, integrity, accountability and effective service delivery. Appending of signatures to the MoU formed the high point of the ceremony. People holding public office must also be financially upright. That is what we preach. However, one has to also consider the fact that many corruption offences often go unnoticed. This means those engaged in such acts should not be seen as the fine men in society simply because they were not caught. The notion of Integrity is a two - way traffic. One has to be financially upright and also morally sound. The two go together. You cannot be financially disciplined and be morally bankrupt and vice versa Maintaining a fine balance of the integrity scale is required of any public officer. We have seen situations wherein the individual can be a fine gentleman in terms of financial propriety but be morally bankrupt when thorough background check is conducted on him in his locality. We must therefore go beyond what the individual shows us and try to discover what he does not wish the public to see. This is why the ACC, in its Integrity Awards, conducts background checks on nominees to ensure that deserving individuals are awarded. In the same vein, we have seen individuals with supposedly high moral standards, who often preside over our religious institutions, but with very low level financial uprightness. If you would want to test their level of integrity try them with money, power or women. In public offices, public and civil servants often look like bloodhounds in search of money. They are not interested in anything that does not involve money. In project implementation, they will follow the money even at the cost of collapsing the project. Integrity is a treasure that is earned and nurtured. One has to hold firm on to it or else it eludes you. One has to work on it on a day - to - day basis. It is a two - way traffic financial uprightness and moral propriety. The two go together. Integrity is a matter of degree which one has to a greater or lesser category. An illiterate has got only himself to pervert, but an intellectual lacking moral obligations can mislead a whole society. Page 10 Deputy Commissioner Shollay Davies making a statement T he Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) through its Systems and Processes Review Department, has unveiled findings of the monitoring and compliance report on 'curbing salary double - dipping in Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs). The ceremony took place at the Commission’s Conference Room, Gloucester Street, Freetown, on Friday 21st September 2018. The report is a systems examination of personnel management, focusing on staff attendance monitoring and payroll management in the Ministries of Health and Agriculture and Food Security. Deputy Commissioner ACC, Shollay Davies, in his statement re - echoed the fact that the Commission's work is not only restricted to investigations and prosecutions; but that it also embarks on the preventative approach through systems and processes review and public education. Mr. Davies disclosed that there are people who are on government payroll as well as receiving salaries from other institutions. He said this attitude does not only increase Government wage bill but also prevents Government from embarking on other serious development programmes. The Deputy Commissioner said, the Commission was able to unearth Le2.8 billion Leones as a result of double - dipping in the Ministries of Health and Sanitation and that of Agriculture and Food Security for the year 2017. He said that the names identified as double - dippers should be deleted from the payroll forthwith. He called on the leadership of public institutions to pay attention to the pay roll to see that they are credible; stressing all have the responsibility to ensure prudent and efficient management of Government resources. In his submission as chairman of the programme, Patrick Sandi, Director of Public Education and Outreach said, the presentation of the compliance monitoring report on salary double - dipping in MDAs is timely as it seeks to address issues of transparency and the protection of public funds and revenue which constitute one of the pillars of the new direction dispensation. He thanked the Monitoring and Compliance Unit for such an enviable report which unravels vulnerabilities within MDAs. Presenting an overview of the report, Rashid Turay, Director of Systems and Processes Review Department said, the report came about as a result of a series of complaints on salary double - dipping in certain MDAs. He said the report is timely as it tends to prevent wastages. Mr. Turay called on all stakeholders to implement the recommendations. Presenting on the findings of the report, Head of Monitoring and Compliance Unit, ACC, Samson Saidu said, his unit reviewed the systems of the two ministries and discovered that mechanisms to update payroll system have not been effective.

5. Page 6 Page 7 . T he Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC), through the Systems and Processes Review Department (SPRD), has organised a series of workshops on the theme “Upholding Ethics and Integrity in the Workplace” for councilors and staff of local councils across the country. The objective of the workshop was to help the councils in mainstreaming ethics and integrity in the institution in order to enhance quality service delivery. The first of such workshops was held on Thursday 19th July 2018 at the Freetown City Council. The Commissioner of ACC, Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. thanked the Mayor of Freetown, Yvonne Akie - Sawyer and said that the vision of the new ACC is to see that the transformative story of Sierra Leone is changed from that of the old one. He said the ACC is expanding its investigations and prosecutions units, to ensure that cases are speedily dealt with. He added that a special court room has been identified and dedicated to speedily try ACC cases. The Chairman of the programme and Deputy Commissioner, ACC Shollay Davies, said corruption has reached a level such that if it is not tackled it will lead to a devastating consequence that will have an adverse effect on the people. He described ethics and integrity as moral values that help any organization or institution to function well. , The Mayor of Freetown Yvonne Akie - Sawyer thanked the ACC for the opportunity accorded the Council to organise the workshop. She said that there is good reason to focus on ethics and integrity if you want to provide quality services noting that this conforms to the Council’s focus to transform the municipality. She identified some challenges the Council is facing, especially on environmental issues, congestion, revenue mobilization, among others. “Some people are refusing to pay their taxes as they no longer have trust in Council”, she said. The Director of Systems and Processes Review Department (SPRD), ACC, Rashid Turay described his Department as the preventive arm of the Commission tasked with conducting systems reviews and processes of public offices and proffer recommendations for best practices. He said the Commission has been receiving many complaints from the public concerning services rendered by the Council. Presentations include; the history and legal framework of corruption, the offences in the Anti - Corruption Act 2008 and codes of conduct and professional standards for public officers. Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. addressing participants at the workshop held at the Freetown City Council T he Tonkolili District Agriculture Officer Mohamed Alpha Bah has singled out bribery as one of the fundamental challenges confronting effective service delivery in public sector institutions. He made the statement at a sensitization meeting on the Pay No Bribe (PNB) campaign organised by the Northern Region Office of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC). The meeting was held at the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security’s Agriculture Road Office in Makeni. While pledging support to the campaign, Mr. Bah said collective efforts are required to defeat bribery for the good of the nation. ACC Public Education Officer Abdulai Saccoh underscored the significance of the engagement, noting that it is intended to establish another tier of partnership with the Ministry on the PNB campaign. Mr. Saccoh shed light on the crucial nature of the ministry’s work as it strives towards ensuring food security. He said that the mandate of the Ministry cannot be achieved when bribery poses a major challenge to effective service delivery. Mr. Saccoh informed his described bribery as anything of monetary value offered or received to a public officer rendering a particular service. He said the campaign leverages on public institutions to take actions deem necessary to address this menace. Updating them on the trend of bribery in PNB targeted MDAs, Mr. Saccoh revealed that since the launch of the campaign there has been steady and sustained progress made by both the ACC and its partners in addressing areas of concerns highlighted on the PNB data monthly report. He catalogued a number of interventions each MDA has undertaken in delivering effective services to the public. Giving an overview of the PNB campaign, ACC Public Education Officer Abdul Karim Bangura said the campaign is a sustained and strategic approach to tack- le bribery in public sector institutions in order to improve service delivery. Mr. Bangura informed his audience that PNB is a reporting platform that provides Sierra Leoneans an opportunity to report incidence of bribery anonymously. He further stated that the campaign is not prosecution focused; rather, it seeks to invoke administrative actions or systems review and policy reforms, to address bribery in key sec- tors namely; education, health, water, energy, police and judiciary. The Public Education Officer stated that the campaign has provided citizens an interactive forum to report incidence of bribery using the various PNB channels such as PNB free line 515 (all phone networks), the website: www.pnb.gov.sl, or on the mobile application in Krio, Mende and Temne. Participants at the engagement “They were expected to mostly go after tigers but focused on NGOs and flies while the corrupt tigers roamed with impunity” , the British Envoy added. The UK High Commissioner assured the ACC of their continued support to the anti - graft campaign. On his part, Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. expressed satisfaction at the visits, noting the need for more cooperation and support in the fight against corruption. Mr. Kaifala gave updates on the work and current high profile investigations and matters already prosecuted by the ACC. Cases investigated by the Commission in the recent past months include the Hajj matter involving former Vice President Victor Foh and other former top Government Ministers, the NASSIT ferries, the multi - billion Leones Youth Farm and Youth Drainage projects, the billions of Leones off - budget expenditures involving the former Commissioner of the National Revenue Authority, the multi - million Dollar TPMS matter, the sale and issuance of the country’s service and diplomatic passports to undeserving persons, among others. The Commission has also unearthed billions of Leones from private and public individuals such as those engaged in double - dipping in public offices. Commissioner Kaifala used the events to thank the US and British Governments for their support on the war against corruption that was declared by President Julius Maada Bio. The President made tackling corruption as one of his main election campaign pledges, and he has consistently voiced his zero tolerance position on corruption. The Commissioner also outlined the challenges that threaten the work of the Commission; requesting for more support in the area of capacity building programmes for staff and whatever that can be available.

6. Page 5 Page 8 I was quick to step in though inquisitively to object to his assertion. “Are you saying that there is no good man left in the entire country?” I asked. Certainly we still have good and honest Sierra Leoneans. The gentleman clearly equated integrity to not giving and/or receiving bribes, someone who has never been found wanting for misappropriation of funds or someone who has never been investigated or found wanting for any corruption offence under the Anti - Corruption Act 2018. I partly agree with this; but wish to state further that the notion of integrity goes beyond issues of financial impropriety to that of other moral imperatives. The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (6th Edition) defines ‘Integrity’ as “The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” I often tell my audience that a person with a high level of integrity does things correctly without having someone watching him. For some people, a person could not be found wanting for financial impropriety but if he is immoral in terms of him having a concubine, or frequenting guesthouses etc. he could not be considered as having a high level of integrity. But lack of integrity goes further than that. The use of official vehicles for private gain is an integrity issue. The use of public computers to watch X - rated movies at work is an integrity issue. Absenting from work, or to report late for work and leave before the stipulated time is also an integrity issue. Frequenting the social media during work hours is another integrity issue. All these acts cause the state to pay remuneration for little or no work done. This is why the NACS 2014 - 2018 recommends subjecting employees to an integrity test from time to time to ensure that employees demonstrate high levels of integrity. Integrity is a matter of degree. We are all humans and so we are bound to err. In any discourse on integrity, therefore, we should not be in haste to pass judgment on someone’s integrity. We all have some level of integrity, but it depends on the magnitude or level. What we crave for under the NACS 2014 - 2018 is for persons holding public offices to demonstrate a very high level of Integrity or propriety. D ecember 9 is the International Anti - Corruption (IAC) Day; a day set aside by the United Nations to call Government’s attention to combat the scourge of corruption. The Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) normally holds series of events to raise awareness on the need for Government and citizens to support the Commission in eradicating corruption. One of the events the Commission used to organise in the past is the Integrity Awards given to deserving Sierra Leoneans who have exhibited exemplary character in both their public and private life. There are other occasions when the Commission chose to reward state institutions for adherence to best Anti - Corruption practices and implementing the National Anti - Corruption Strategy (NACS) 2014 - 2018 instead. As you may be aware the concept Integrity is often misunderstood by many. Some have the notion that ‘ Integrity’ is a state or condition which an individual may possess. My argument in this piece is that, the notion of ‘integrity’ is a process which involves striving on a daily basis to develop and imbibe this all - important value. This means attaining the value is not a one - off event. You can be a person of high integrity today but become a completely different person overnight. On the flipside of it, you can be a corruption convict today, but gradually learn from the experience and become a better person to the extent of even converting to an anti - corruption crusader. Sometime back, I found myself in a restaurant in the east end of Freetown and I was seated close to two gentlemen. The two were engrossed in some discussion in which one of them retorted: “There is no one with integrity in Sierra Leone” . I later came to know that the said gentleman is a staff of an audit firm, and had conducted audit on a government institution few months back. He shared his experience without naming any person or institution. There was a particular time when his firm conducted an audit of the institution and the findings were damning. The head of the said institution requested from the head of the auditing firm not to publish the incriminatory areas of the report. The head of the government entity was someone he had held in very high esteem and had admired for quite a long time. However, this single act made him to hold the view that there was no good man left in the country. Contd./pg.10 Contd./pg 10 T he Commissioner of the Anti - Corruption Commission (ACC) has told stakeholders in the fight against corruption countrywide about how corruption has adversely affected the development of Sierra Leone. Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. was speaking during his maiden regional tour of Bo, Kenema, Makeni and Kono respectively where he met with ACC staff and other stakeholders in the fight against corruption. The stakeholders include the police, military, local councils and other ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of government, paramount chiefs, civil society activists and the media. Addressing stakeholders in Bo, the ACC Commissioner said the country has lost so much as a result of corruption. “Those businessmen who look at transparency indices before they can invest in countries will not come to Sierra Leone because of corruption.” Mr. Kaifala also made reference to the five hundred million dollar Millennium Challenge Corporation grant which the country has failed to secure as a result of the country’s failure to pass the control of corruption indicator. In Makeni, Mr. Kaifala told a jam - packed hall at the Makeni City Council that the fight against corruption is not about region, tribe or party; but a fight to save the soul of Sierra Leone. In Kono, the ACC Commissioner said in little over a decade from now, the country will be celebrating the centenary of the discovery of the first diamond in the district. He said it is however sad that the diamonds have not manifested in the infrastructure and wellbeing of the people of the district. “ Corruption is a menace and a problem. But every problem has a solution,” he said in Kenema. He said that is why he has declared a war on corruption; a war that the Commission will certainly win. He described the battle against corruption as one that will be “fierce but fair” . He called on stakeholders to be on the side of the Commission and work to minimize corruption, if not eradicate it. The Commissioner told stakeholders in the regions about the steps he has taken to strengthen the fight against corruption including the setting up of a special court to try corruption cases at the premises of the former Special Court for Sierra Le- o n e . “It is my fervent hope that the place that brought the war to an end will help to end corruption in this country,” he said. The Commissioner also informed his audiences about his vision to expand the investigations and prosecutions arms of the ACC, so that cases will be handled efficiently and effectively. This, he said, will also help the Commission to provide answers to those questions people have been asking about certain cases. He said the ACC will give some priority to preventive regimes by building the systems and processes of MDAs in a bid to ensure effective service delivery. Mr. Kaifala also spoke on the need to review the Anti - Corruption Act 2008 and address some of the challenges in the assets declaration regime, especially the area of exit declaration by public officers, which he referred to as unfair to anti - corruption efforts. The Deputy Commissioner of ACC Shollay Davies, who accompanied the Commissioner and chaired the meetings, told the stakeholders that the idea behind the Commissioner’s tour is for him to inform them about his plans and vision to fight against corruption in the country. Mr. Davies said the Commission now needs partners more than ever before in order to win the fight against corruption .
