EO 418 – Lovewell Mwikho

Lovewell Mwikho
Malawi revenue authority
Ethics and Sensitisation Manager

Why did you attend the programme?
I attended this course because it was relevant to what I do in my job and also considering that I was put in a position to champion ethics matters in my company a thing that was not there before, it was imperative that I attend this course. The company saw it necessary to send me because the issues of ethics impact a lot on the day to day operation. The company has been entrusted with a responsibility to collect revenues for government and issues of integrity hamper this vey objective. The only solution therefore is to have somebody who is knowledgeable on the ethics issues to handle the challenges the company faces so that the objectives are achieved as planned.

How did it benefit you personally?
This Course benefited me personally in that my eyes were opened to issues of ethics and my behavior changed in the way I approach issues. I am able to notice ethical problems as they come and manage them accordingly.

How is it benefiting your company?
After the course I have trained all the Officers on ethical issues affecting the company and several ethics programmes have been put in place and integrity of officers is now being seen to be positive. As a result of this, revenues are being achieved easily.
