Non Formal Education is very effective in the fight against corruption especially in Africa than ICT. Majority of Africa countries are facing difficulties with connectivity, computer literacy, power supply, mobile technology etc. which makes it difficult to use ICT in curbing corruption in Africa.
Even though ICT is critical in the fight against corruption but NFE is more effective in curbing corruption in Africa. The use of community theater, skits, rag parade, comic relief shows, pictorials etc are essential tools in the curbing corrupt related activities in Africa. This increase the level of public awareness raise on the concept and ills of corruption.
I have the conviction that Non Formal Education is more effective in the fight against corruption than ICT.
Thanks Foday, for such a discussion topic and your view and stance on the effectiveness of non formal education than the use of information communication technology as you rightly pointed out the challenges and difficulties faced by many countries in Africa and other difficulty is, it is costly to procure.
I actually want to say that the two approach are equally effective in curbing corruption in Africa. Base on the targeted population ICT can be used to tract and report corrupt related act immediately for quick and timely response and will reduce cost on individual, especially for those that are literate,while NFE can be effective for raising community awareness on the act of corruption especially for illiterate and kids in schools.
On a whole, ICT is effective in reporting and tracking the act of corruption and it mostly target those that read and write and also effective in transmitting short campaign messages. It a fact, that mobile phone are in use by people that has never been to school and they are communicating with it with or without help of others. and NFE is effective in raising community awareness on the ills of corruption and it mechanism for action (reporting).
My take for now.
