Co-chair for the citizens against corruption, a civil society group Edem Senanu, has been sworn in as Ghana’s representative to the African Union’s agency responsible for promoting Anti-corruption, today at the headquarters of AU A.B.C in Arusha Tanzania to replace the late Daniel Batidam who resigned in 2022.
Kwami Edem Senanu is now an official member of the AU ABC. Prior to his inauguration in Arusha Tanzania, was busily contributing to the most topical issue in Ghana – the illegal mining that has held the whole country to ransom after the former minister for Environment Prof. Frimpong Boateng’s handing over note to the presidency on the fight against galamsey was leaked.
The African Union Advisory Board against Corruption (AUABC) was established by Article 22 of the African Union Convention on Preventing and Combating Corruption which entered into force on 5th August 2006.
The Board is comprised of eleven (11) Members and has the broad mandate to promote and encourage the adoption of measures and actions by State Parties to prevent, detect, punish and eradicate corruption and related offences in Africa. Its headquarters is in Arusha, Tanzania.
Prior to his nomination and endorsement by AU Member States, Hon Senanu was the co-Chair of Citizens Movement Against Anti-Corruption (CmAC) in Ghana, and a very visible face – helping fight corruption – on Ghanaian media with the ability to speak truth to power.
