About

Project Description:

Today, the country is considered as one of the poorest nations in the world in spite of its rich natural resources. This has been perpetuated and consolidated by undemocratic practices and by bad political, economic and corporate governance and management. The public service itself has been characterised by a plethora of problems including poor staff motivation partly due to lacking competitive salaries, cumbersome and outdated regulations and procedures, weak systems of accountability and transparency and an unsystematic and uncoordinated human resource development all of which created a fertile ground for the seeds of corruption to grow and flourish.

Being committed to the fight against corruption, the Government of Sierra Leone set up the Anti-Corruption Commission through an Act of Parliament in February 2000 with a mandate to prevent all forms of corruption in Sierra Leone. In his maiden address to parliament the present Government of Ernest Bai Koroma has also reiterated its commitment to the fight against graft and zero tolerance policy for corruption.
