Abstract [en]

Botswana is a country which stands out from the rest of the countries on the African

continent with its democratic stability and relatively low levels of corruption. With the

establishment of anti-corruption institutions Directorate of Corruption and Economic

Crime- DCEC and Office of the Ombudsman Botswana is often seen as a largely

successful country when it comes to fighting corruption. However, there has been a

significant amount of criticism regarding the work carried out by DCEC and the

ombudsman. Hence this essay looks at what Botswana’s anti-corruption looks like

today as well as examining the country’s requisites for keeping their relatively low level

of corruption. The essay uses theories of Robert Klitgaard in order to analyse how and

where corruption emerge, as well as Michael Johnston’s theory of corruption syndromes

to be able to get a deeper insight in the nature of the kind of corruption that takes place

in countries such as Botswana. The method used in this essay is a qualitative case study

which uses the theories as a tool for analysing rather than testing them. Finally, the

essay concludes that the political elite of Botswana has an alarming power over

institutions which should be free and independent. Furthermore, the defects of the

institutions DCEC and ombudsman are concluded as major challenges facing the

country when it comes to keeping their relatively low level of corruption.
