The Anti-Corruption Commission’s Northern Region office, in the Bombali district, was officially opened by President Ernest Bai Koroma in September 2008. This office was established out of the Commission’s strategic plan of 2008-2010 which calls for the progressive expansion of the Commission to the regions.
The Makeni office has two operational units:
- The Public Education and Outreach
- Intelligence, Investigations and Prosecution.
People in the Northern Region send reports of corruption to the Makeni office. Some of these reports have been under investigations.
The office also undertakes awareness raising programmes on the ills of corruption in communities, schools, and with civil society organizations.
