Corruption remains an inherent problem in utilization of revenue and public resources. This is in spite of official state led anti-corruption initiatives. Despite these reforms and efforts, corruption remains a fundamental problem. The public sector requires rethinking its approach to public finances oversight in the wake of questionable financial malpractices covering the entire spectrum in the public sector. If left alone the formal oversight institutions will not achieve much in the fight against corruption and wastage of taxpayers’ money. There is therefore need for citizens to monitor resources allocated to projects at the sub national level.
