But public approval of the government’s efforts to combat corruption has increased dramatically since 2014, after more than a decade of decline.

These findings provide solid backing for government and reformers seeking to strengthen laws and their enforcement in the fight against corruption.

The findings are being released a few weeks after the passing of the Special Prosecutor’s Bill, which is expected to help government effectively crack the whip of justice against corrupt public officers, political office holders, and accomplices.
