Fighting against corruption is everyone’s obligation because corruption has serous consequences on individuals as well as the countrywide. Everybody has to understand that corruption is a disease which interrupts and blocks the human rights as well as the good governance development.
The Office of the Ombudsman of Rwanda adopted the strategies to show all Rwandans in order to know how much corruption is very dangerous thing to our society, telling them to take part in fighting against it.
The main strategies taken in fighting against corruption we can state here: the workshops, trainings, radio press conference, article to journalists, advertisements, short messages etc.., but also an art has its great role in preventing corruption.
Art makes deep analysis of what already exist and rejects out what is bad and retain and teach what is good aiming to build an integrated society, in all categories of the art such as poems, and songs give message to everybody literate and illiterate. These two categories have been chosen by the Office of the Ombudsman in emphasizing the role of the artists in preventing and fighting against corruption through out targeted songs and poems.
In November and December this year, the Office has organised the artists competitions throughout their songs and poems. The competitions took places respectively at District level, Provinces and Kigali City, and at the end, on the national level. These competitions will be part of activities planned for the anti corruption week that begins from 06 to 09 December 2010. The songs and poems insisted on the role of the Ombudsman in its battle of fighting against corruption and other relative offenses. As said by them fighting against corruption is for everyone women and men, adults and children without any exception. Overcoming corruption is the key way and a shortcut to the real good governance in order to attend the 2020 vision. Different categories of artists attended these competitions: men, women, youth, students and prisoners showed how bad corruption is, hence their works will help a lot in spreading the message of fighting against corruption. As mentioned by the deputy Ombudsman in charge of preventing and fighting against corruption Mr.NZINDUKIYIMANA Augustin during the closing ceremony of the competition in Nyaruguru District on 04/11/2010. The young artists have impotent role in preventing corruption, in terms of building a country free of corruption, knowing the consequences of corruption is very important as future leaders of our country; since they know and understand how bad is corruption, it will have a positive impact on our country and on the citizens’ benefit. One of the artists who attended the competitions said that, they are very honoured to have the fact that the Ombudsman of Rwanda understands the role of artists in this battle of fighting against corruption, in giving them the way of raising their good voices to tell the people Rwanda the badness of corruption. The artists believe that their works will play a great role in preventing the corruption because their works contain the message of changing the minds of corrupted people.
