- Legal Framework:
The Government has since 2001 maintained a strong legal framework to fight corruption in Zambia. This is evident from the several cases of suspected corruption that the Commission has handled and brought before the courts of law
In furthering the fight against corruption and strengthening the current legal framework the Commission initiated the process of reviewing the law on corruption in order to bring it in line with international best practices. The ACC also lobbied for the enactment of other legislation to support the fight against corruption. As a result, a new law on corruption called the Anti-Corruption Commission Act No. 38 of 2010 was enacted. This is the law underwhich the ACC currently operates.
Further, the Government also enacted a Whistle Blower protection law called the Public Interest Disclosure Act No 4 of 2010 as well as the Forfeiture of Proceeds of Crime Act No. 19 of 2010.
- Community Education and Corruption Prevention Exercises:
The Commission has continued to successfully conduct several community education and corruption prevention exercises throughout the country as part of the execution of its mandate.
- Introduction of Civic Education in Schools:
In 2002, The Anti-Corruption Commission, in conjunction with the Curriculum Development Centre embarked on the development of a Civic Education Syllabus for schools in Zambia. The syllabus aims at inculcating correct civic attitudes, develop appropriate value and morals among the youths and covers topics on corruption, human rights, democracy and drug abuse. In 2006, the syllabus was introduced as a pilot in a number of schools.
Further, the Commission has worked with the youths through youth festivals and school anti- corruption clubs and has raised the levels of awareness on the evils of corruption among the youths.
