REVIEW AND UPDATE OF THE 2008 NATIONAL ANTI-CORRUPTION STRATEGY (NACS)

The Malawi Government through the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is in the process of reviewing and updating 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. The review process will draw upon lessons learned over the past ten years to enhance coordination and execution of anti-corruption efforts. The process started with stakeholder consultations from the 26th of November to 11th December, 2018 in Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Blantyre and Zomba. Participants were drawn from the Executive, Judiciary, Legislature, Civil Society, Private Sector, Media, Traditional Leaders, Faith Based Organizations, the Youth and Academia. The Consultation process will continue up to February, 2019. Views will also be solicited from other players through key informant interviews and focus group discussions. The updated NACS is expected to be drafted by a special task force which will be set up to oversee the drafting, printing and launching of the NACS by August, 2019

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@gmai.com
