Corruption in Zambia takes many faces and is quite common, especially in the area of public service delivery. Thus, delivery of some public services by public officials is perceived to be poor and or uneven across the country and public institutions have often been implicated in corrupt practices. Therefore, the government of Zambia has been trying to provide an environment to fight corruption effectively by establishing the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) which has been mandated with the task of sensitizing and educating civil servants or rather public officers about the dangers of corruption and it's adverse effects on public delivery system. The ACC has therefore formulated different and various methods of sensitizing as well as educating civil servants about the need to reduce corruption so as to improve the performance of the Public Service and ultimately the quality of services rendered by public institutions. It is therefore the purpose of this academic paper to show that our anti-corruption initiatives in Zambia to some extent have had a great impact although it cannot be claimed that corruption has completely been eradicated.
