Promotion of good governance and combating corruption and maladministration: The case of Botswana

Volume: Volume 12(1) - 2008

Article type: Refereed article

Author/s: Mbao, Melvin and GG Komboni

Melvin Mbao and GG Komboni criticise the legal regime and institutional arrangements designed to promote good government and to combat corruption and maladministration in Botswana, a country widely acclaimed as Africa's success story. Using internationally accepted benchmarks on good governance and combating corruption, the article seeks to critically evaluate Botswana's record on these issues. It concludes that although Botswana has a relatively good record on good governance and in controlling the scourge of corruption, these achievements should not lull the country into complacency.
