MEXICO CITY — “Corruptour” is a bus tour with a difference, as it takes visitors to Mexico on a ten-stop trip of the capital’s alleged corrupt hot-spots. It has been set up by the Mexican anti-graft organisation Via Ciudadana to expose what it calls the abuse of power and misuse of public funds that many say is rife in Mexico and goes largely unpunished, the BBC reports.
The group hopes it will mobilise Mexicans to hold those elected to account and take action against graft.
The tour stops at the offices of television network Televisa, singled out for allegedly having a very friendly relationship with the federal government.
Along the tour is also the Senate of the Republic, a construction project that cost three times the approved budget.
And then there is the city’s Attorney General’s office, chosen for its inaction during a highly publicised series of videotaped scandals involving city officials during the administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, another 2018 presidential hopeful. He also ran an unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2012.
Also included is a luxury house allegedly linked to Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto, who became embroiled along with his wife and finance minister in a scandal over homes bought from and financed by a government contractor.
