MOB ACTIONS BECOMING MEANS OF DEALING WITH CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS?.
Information reaching us from across nations of the world including the World Bank and its allies point to increase in corruption in high government offices. In some African countries and some developed and developing nations some government officials in key positions have been found to have embezzled public funds meant for government projects. Funds stolen by these government officials and kept overseas are so huge that they affect the development of the nations concerned. The findings are as a result of audit reports and reports of special enquiries. Currently huge cash stolen by late president of Nigeria General Saani Abacha and other governors of Nigeria and other nations are being repatriated back to their nations. However, because actions required to retrieve some of the stolen funds are quite slow, corrupt government officials are left off the hook.
As a result of this, ordinary people are getting wide awake to the extent that they have begun taking actions to punish corrupt government officials. Actions taken against these officials take different forms. These include demonstrations, interspersed with hooting, display of placards and hurling of insults.
The height of the mob actions was first captured by the mainstream and social media in Ukraine where a mob manhandled a corrupt legislator. The legislator was apprehended by people outside parliament and thrown into a dustbin.
They have sworn to continue taking actions till the MPs stopped stealing. This was followed by another action this time in Nigeria where the state governor of Niger State was hooted at openly by his subjects as done to common criminals calling him thief ‘barawo’ in Hausa. All those who saw the video clips on the action taken to punish the high profile criminals were surprised. however, they wanted similar actions to be taken to halt corruption in all nations. according to Mr. Vitus Azeem Ghana’s anti-corruption crusader said the action by the people against corruption is sign of things to come. Mr. Azeem who also heads the Coalition for the Right to information warned that if corrupt activities are not halted in high places mob actions would continue till it reaches all nations.
