Freedom of information

  • It is a challenge to a culture of unnecessary official secrecy
  • It promotes accountability in a democracy for policies, operational activities and (very importantly) public expenditure
  • It is deterrent to corruption, impropriety, maladministration and so on
  • It improves the quality of decision-making
  • It improves confidence and trust in government
  • It brings knowledge to th people
