When you see the high rate of corruption and embezzlement with our government officials, it is heartbreaking and wracking. And they are untouchable and unaccountable. Since it like no one is capable of Jerry Rawlins of Ghana exploit of cleaning the system of corruption, let try technology. Acting as the devil's advocate, I present to you iJusticeNow Solutions. iJusticeNow solutions is a state of the art innovation exploring the power of nanotechnology. The technology involves nanobots which are designed and targeted to infect corrupt officials with specific programme to target main organs of the body. Then there's the monitor which tracks the presence and location of the bots in the body capable of sending and receiving command signals. At the instance of any suspected corrupt practices with facts and evidences on officials/individuals, a notification will be sent with time frame to confess and surrender all proceeds of lootings. A command signal to the nanobots will be sent to give him/her an organ shock e.g Heart attack, just to know it ain't a bluff. They have the choice choosing between life or death!!!

How could digital technologies provide a solution to this challenge?

Combining nanotechnology and mobile applications can challenge the status quo of approach to dealing with corruption.

I have moved this to the Human Rights, Good Governance & Social Justice challenge.
Osu - this is somewhat far-fetched. More realistic is this post:
Governance in Africa is shrouded in secrecy https://ukri.crowdicity.com/post/825730

Hi Charles, I expect the response. But do you think the corrupt acts of our officials is not far fetched? Lives are destroyed on daily basis because of their actions. E.g diverting money for health care to their personal pockets. Do you know the lives lost because they lack access to health care and yet money is located but nothing to show for it

We empower the voters to elect leaders who are less prone to corruption and hold them accountable. Start with the voters.

Yes we start we the voters. And I want to use my country as an example where voters are themselves electing corrupt people to power because they feel there's no other option. We are having an election in a few days time and you will be bemused by some voters who feels the election is between two parties and other parties are waste of time. It is these same 2 main parties that have worsen the state of the country.

@Osu. As noted, the idea is good but requires more thought. Can a list of shame (Shame the corrupt individuals) via digital technologies help to achieve your goal? Voters can have access to the information to help them in decision making when it comes to voting.

There are plenty of media outlets available including social media to 'name and shame' corrupt officials however this must be backed up with actual evidence of corruption and not be just speculation and/or inference but at the same time those making the claims must be able to do so without fear of retribution from those named in office

Yes I agree with this approach but it is not effective. It is not today we have been reading about corrupt officials with evidences but nothing happened to them. I am saying this in the context of my country. The public have become so used to corruption issues that it has become non-issues. And that is because they are not used to seeing justice prevailing over corrupt individuals. The names of some of our officials came out in the Panama papers and nothing happens. So media shaming is no use here, they have developed thick skin to it.
