Challenges to Democratic Governance in Developing Countries
Due to the inherent difficulties in curbing corrupt practices within the public sector, several countries in sub-Saharan Africa are today engaged in what can be described as experimentation with diverse and creative strategies. These strategies range from public education and awareness, to institutional and democratic reforms, economic liberalization, and the creation of ad hoc or permanent anticorruption agencies (Robinson 1998). In some countries such agencies are established through the acts of parliaments and in some by presidential decrees (Pillay and Dorasamy 2010). Often the rationale for such agencies are twofold: to investigate claims of corruption and to prosecute the perpetrators and to demonstrate to the general public that the government is acting accountably and responsibly by trying to do something about the vice.
