In recent years, institutions and forums have raised themes relating to the control of corruption, and various initiatives have stressed the importance of combating corruption in order to attain sustainable socio-economic development. Since the advent of multiparty democracy in Malawi in 1994, the fight against corruption has taken centre-stage. The purpose of this article is to assess the enforcing structural and institutional mechanisms that have been put in place to combat corruption in Malawi. However, specific attention is placed on the operations of constitutional bodies and, in particular, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). The central theme of the article is that the political-legal and institutional bottlenecks that constrain the established mechanisms and institutions need to be pragmatically addressed to ensure effectiveness in the fight against corruption.
