Free Public Seminar on Corruption

A free public seminar, jointly organised by Transparency Solomon Islands T-S-I and the Winds of Change W-O-C, will thoroughly examine the issue of corruption in Solomon Islands and Kenya.

The three main speakers will be Joseph Karanja and Lawrence Kuria of Kenya, speaking as guests of Winds of Change, and Joses Tuhanuku, the Executive officer of Transparency Solomon Islands.

The seminar will compare and contrast the different experiences of the two former British colonies in relation to the issue of corruption. Mr Karanja and Mr Kuria will speak on the experience of Kenya in corruption, since it attained its political independence and how the people there have fought against corruption over the years.

T-S-I's Executive Officer Joses Tuhanuku says it will be interesting to compare the two countries' experiences and what they have done or are doing to tackle the terrible affliction of corruption. Mr Tuhanuku will speak on the Solomon Islands experience.

The seminar will be held at 5 o'clock this afternoon at the Honiara Town Council's Education Conference Room.
