Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and Technical University of Mombasa are working together to improve professional ethics among the staff at the institution.
The initiative was rolled out last week when EACC conducted a training on measures to uphold honesty, transparency and integrity mostly in management of funds and handling clients.
Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Laila Abubakar made a commitment to upholding integrity and transparency on behalf of the varsity at the end of the training session by the Jackson Sokoine-led EACC team of trainers.
"Your visit and training will go a long way in boosting our efforts of sustaining a corruption-free TUM. Our staff now know that this effort is not a preserve of the management but every staff" said Laila.
Sokoine emphasized on protection of whistle blowers by the management, encouraged staff to volunteer with information as a way of ensuring honest in transaction of business within and outside the institution.
"For maximum results in the effort towards integrity and honest there is need for whistle blowers to be protected and free flow of information on voluntary basis" said Sokoine.
The two-day trainings benefited top management, mid-level staff and the student leadership, Technical University of Mombasa Students Organization.
