The future for the graft busters at the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) and the Anti-Corruption Network (ANC) should be looking healthy. But behind the scenes, it would not appear to be so.
The NACC is opening more offices in the provinces _ more than two dozen in recent weeks. That is a good sign for those who are fed up with polls showing that corruption is OK as long as the public benefits from it too.
NACC offices which will be opened in every province by the end of next year will monitor suspicious projects undertaken or about to launch by local governments. At the same time officials on the ground can kick off a campaign to raise awareness on the danger of corruption to the people.
