The Malawi Government through the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is commencing a review and update of the 2008 National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS). This is a tool designed to provide a holistic approach to the fight against corruption in Malawi.

In 2008, the first NACS was developed to promote good governance and eradicate all forms of corruption in Malawi. By incorporating a range of informed perspectives, it sets out a comprehensive set of reforms and promotes a culture that is intolerant to corrupt practices.

The current review process will draw upon lessons learned over the past ten years to enhance coordination and execution of anti-corruption efforts.

The people of Malawi play a critical role in the overall fight against corruption. Therefore, the updated NACS will serve as a tool to empower and encourage Malawians to demand accountability from public officers and any service provider.

In order to ensure that the review process is inclusive, the ACB has organised consultations to seek input from all relevant groups of society on current trends and challenges of corruption in Malawi.

The consultations will be held from the 26th of November to 5th December, 2018 in Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Blantyre and Zomba. Participants will be drawn from the Executive, Judiciary, Legislature, Civil Society, Private Sector, Media, Traditional Leaders, Faith Based Organizations, the Youth and Academia.

The Malawi Government is encouraging all Malawians to contribute to the review process by forwarding their proposals to the Director General of ACB through the contacts provided above or a special email account which has been opened specifically for the review nacsreview2018@gmail.com.

Let us join hands in the fight against corruption.
