Members of Parliament (MPs) were given the opportunity to learn about the roles played by the Leadership Code Commission (LCC) during the induction program at the National Parliament on Wednesday.
Speaking before the MPs Chairman of Leadership Code Commission (LCC) Francis Luza delivered his power point presentation by highlighting the roles and importance for MPs to know about the functions of LCC, as it exists to uphold transparency, accountability and integrity of National leaders and public servants.
The presentation was really educational and constructive as MPs have the privilege to share comments and questions with the LCC chairman, who take notes of important ideas and also respond to doubts and confusion that MPs needs clarification on, from the work of the commission.
The program went on with few interesting aspects of the LCC work pertaining to misconduct and allegations of corruptions, for instance dishing out of contract jobs and recruitment of employees motivated by nepotism.
Another interesting thing about the consultation that raised curiosity is the compulsory requirement by the LCC for all national leaders and senior public servants to declare their private businesses before the commission.
The presentation was impressive as MPs, staff of the parliament and the media personnel were able to learn more about the functions of LCC.
