“Civil society organizations are essential for keeping the government in check and ensuring that the promises made to the people are fulfilled. They serve as watchdogs, advocating the rights and interests of the citizens. These organizations should work together with anti-corruption agencies to expose corruption and malfeasance within the political system”.
