International Journal of Liability and Scientific Enquiry (IJLSE), Vol. 1, No. 3, 2008

Abstract: This paper critically sets out the South African and the African Union's legal framework for the combat and prevention of bribery of foreign public officials, and the extent to which these instruments advance the African dream of combating corruption in line with international developments. In particular, the paper looks at the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Act of 2004, and the 2003 African Union Convention on Prevention and Combating Corruption. This paper examines comparatively the background to these instruments, their provisions on the offence of bribery, and their strengths and weaknesses.
