The Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) has urged women to take a leading role in the fight against corruption.
YWCA national president Lucy Masiye said corruption should be talked about in the same manner gender based violence is discussed.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday, Ms. Masiye said corruption has led to high levels of poverty and venerability among the less privileged people in Zambia.
She said corruption has disadvantage the poor people even in the education sector.
Ms. Masiye said in some instances, only people that have money have access to university bursaries while those that are poor fail to be sponsored.
She said YWCA was working in collaboration with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in order to fight the vice.
Ms. Masiye said YWCA has since put in place measures in towns such as Chipata, Kasama and Lusaka branches to step up the fight against corruption in the country.
She added that the joint activities will address issues that will spearhead the fight against corruption.
