The Ombudsman, Anastase Murekezi, has called on youth to embrace the culture of fighting corruption as it undermines economic development of the country.

Murekezi was speaking Sunday in Huye District under the fight against corruption campaign dubbed ‘Youth, it’s our responsibilities to fight against corruption’

“Youth have power and determination to fight against corruption in a way that can challenge old people. You should spearhead this battle and terminate any form of corruption in the generation to come,” he said.

He urged youth to use partnership along the process, saying that fighting against corruption is not an individual task.

“You should work in groups as none could work alone along the way. We assure you possible support from the government and the Office of the Ombudsman inparticular,” he said.

The youth committed to play their role in the fighting against corruption, calling upon government’s support in implementing their initiatives.

“We have a club that has different activities aimed at fighting corruption. We call for your support so that we can broadcast our initiatives on Radios as they have good messages” said Immaculée Ishimwe, a student in University of Rwanda, College of Arts and Social Sciences.
