I Say No To Corruption! Art Competition
As a stakeholder in the fight against corruption, the Botswana Centre for Public Integrity (BCPI) has the mandate to share information, educate the public about integrity, the importance of transparency, accountability, and promoting the embedding of shared values, norms, and principles.
We fulfill this mandate through various activities that are aimed at creating a platform where multiple stakeholders come together.
The objective of this competition is to:
- To promote and foster interest and participation in the arts in the fight against corruption using artivism.
- To create awareness around issues of ethics and accountability, integrity and transparency through graphic art.

“As we are all aware that we are in the 16days of activism against Gender-Based Violence, it is everyone’s role to curb GBV. We as the society should make it our responsibility to raise awareness in community gatherings such as churches, VDC meetings, etc…” – Refilwe Phalady
Leadership is not always about you, it is about people and often circumstances. I call upon African leaders to open up to second-generation rights
“Without strong watchdog institutions, impunity becomes the very foundation upon which systems of corruption are built”
“Having authority implies accountability. If you reject the blame for failures under your watch, people reject your leadership”
“Integrity, Transparency, and the fight against corruption have to be part of the culture. They have to be thought of as fundamental values.”
