The activities include a march on Friday.

The march is the first in a series of events being held in the capital to mark this year's International Anti-corruption Day with the theme "Breaking the Corruption Chain."

The head of transparency Solomon Islands Ruth Liloqula said many people in the country know that corruption is bad.

She said they talk about corruption in their everyday conversation, preachers preach it to their congregations and people comment and write about it in the media as well as on social media.

But Miss Liloqula said Solomon Islands needs to break free from inaction if it wants to break the corruption chain.
