Abstract
After one year in office, the main concern among the CACC members was the non-reporting of corruption cases. This was despite the increase in the suggestion boxes, from one box to three boxes. A questionnaire sent through section/programme heads sought information relating to staff knowledge on corruption, its effects and signs, reasons for not reporting and suggested improvements. From 148 copies administered, 92 or 62% were returned, but one was blank. Summarised below are some of the findings. From their own perception, staffs appear to be well versed on what corruption was: abuse of office, dishonesty, bribery, impunity and misuse of resources among other less frequent definitions. Though corruption is thought by many to be high where money is involved, discrimination, favouritism and biased rewarding of some staff featured prominently. Over pricing and supply of poor quality goods; inefficiency and poor service delivery; misuse of resources and poor work attendance were other forms.
