Broke institutions (Anti Corruption Commission)

Yet another example of how poor funding undermines institutional reform. The fight against corruption is supposed to be spearheaded by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). Data and information collection is critical to enable timely and focused corruption interventions. That needs money, and money is what they don't have - so until that arrives, one can only hope for the "good will" of Zambians to take the stance on corruption.
