The Commissioner of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and the Integrity Vice President of the World Bank Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for joint collaboration.

The MoU was signed by the ACC Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. and the World Bank Group’s Integrity Vice President Mouhamadou Diagneon, following the Bank’s International Corruption Hunters Alliance summit held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire on the theme “Collective Action in an Era of Crises”.

The MoU provides a broad framework for cooperation between the World Bank and the Anti-corruption Commission of Sierra Leone and assures mutual support in the respective responsibilities of the parties.

The World Bank Group works with countries across the world to end poverty and boost prosperity for the poorest. The institution also helps in creating sustainable economic growth, investing in people, and building resilience in people to shocks and threats that can roll back decades progress.

The ACC, on its part, leads the fight against corruption in Sierra Leone through public education, prevention, investigation, and prosecution of individuals suspected of committing acts of corruption.

It could be recalled that, the Commission is also currently involved in the monitoring of World Bank-supported Social Safety Net (SSN) program meant for extremely poor Sierra Leoneans in the most deprived communities of the country, spearheading the Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM) component of the project.

It had also provided monitoring and sensitization support to the control of Covid-19 pandemic in Sierra Leone through the Integrated Health Projects Administration Unit (IHPAU) with funds from the World Bank.
