A so-called anti-corruption unit has been set up at the Cameroon Radio Television, CRTV. The unit has reportedly been placed under the direct supervision of the general manager of the corporation and is expected to denounce, sentence and prevent corruption within CRTV. The management of the state radio and television say the financial crime stoppers will work in collaboration with the National Anti-Corruption Commission.
One of the primary missions of the organ is to ensure that administrative bottle necks are removed. The body has also been given the onerous task of putting an end to file chasing which is said to fuel corruption within the company. Top officials of establishment will have 72 hours to process files in order to avoid unnecessary delays and favouritism.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the members of the newly created unit are also expected to employ the rapid results initiative to fight corruption and will be installed Tuesday the 18th of October 2016 during a ceremony at the CRTV Production Centre at Mballa 2 in Yaounde. Two former general managers of the corporation have been jailed for corruption.
