“If you are genuinely fighting corruption, you must put in place mechanisms and measure to discourage people from embracing the act.
“There is no way that you pay people starvation wages, or make it impossible for them to receive their pensions and gratuities when they retire, and expect that they will not engage in corrupt practices.”
