The National House of Chiefs has decried recurrent corruption scandals it says, only continue to leave the citizenry in poverty, joblessness, broken homes and shattered dreams.

The chiefs cite what they describe as crisis and controversies under past and current governments, from the ‘guinea fowls’ saga to the most recent Power Distribution Service agreement suspension.
