Brigadier General Charity Bainababo, the Deputy Commandant of the elite Special Forces Command-SFC has warned senior officers against engaging in the unethical practice of embezzling the salaries and allowances of their subordinates.

Corruption is a cancer that hits hard. If a soldier goes hungry because a commander has stolen his money to pay fees for their child, the child will go to school with curses of stolen money,” Brig Gen Bainababo said.

Addressing an audience at the piping ceremony of officers from the Presidential Protection Guard (PPG) at the Special Forces Command (SFC) headquarters, Brig Gen Bainababo stressed that officers in positions of authority must set a positive example for their juniors.
