Integrity Idol 2015 is a nationwide citizen campaign to highlight the most honest government officials in Liberia. Every day, for five days, The Bush Chicken will feature a short bio and a video of each finalist. Anyone can vote for their favorite idol.
The competition aims to generate debate around the idea of integrity and demonstrate the importance of honesty, personal responsibility and accountability as well as inspire a new generation to be more effective public servants.
Today’s featured finalist, Comfort Nimely, is a caretaker at the Ministry of Internal Affairs office in Grand Kru County. She also volunteers with the Barclayville Marketeers Association and is a founding board member of the county’s only bank, Rural Community Finance Institution. “You have to sacrifice yourself before money will come,” she said. “You have to do something to help your people.”
