Introduction and Background 1.1 Introduction Social problems affecting the nation continually make the headlines in local newspapers. Among the various problems, three in particular are more common. Recently, the centre stage has been taken by Passion killings while corruption and theft also show great increase. Lastly, road accidents have grown in headlines thus have given rise to great concern. Corruption is most commonly defined as the misuse or the abuse of public office for private gain (Rijckeghem and Weder, 1997). It can come in various forms and a wide array of illicit behavior, such as bribery, extortion, fraud, nepotism, graft, speed money, pilferage, theft, embezzlement, falsification of records, kickbacks, influence peddling, and campaign contributions. While corruption is commonly attributed to the public sector, it also exists in other aspects of governance, such as political parties, private business sector, and NGO (Rijckeghem and Weder, 1997). The paper analyses the prevalence of corruption in Namibia and the regional disparity of the problem. Such analysis is a prerequisite for an effective strategy for fighting corruption, as the strategy should take into account and address the main sources of corruption and regional factors. 1.2 Statement of Problem The resultant effect of corruption is that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Such a situation is not ideal for a country seeking to achieve a relatively equal distribution of income among the citizens. In addition, strategies to combat corruption are failing to the one-size-fit-all approach, as such an analysis of regional disparity of corruption may lead to tailor made solutions. 1.3 Research Objectives The main objective of the study is to facilitate the development of Namibian solutions to  Namibian problems. In order to fulfill this objective, the following sub-objectives are intended:    To determine the intensity of corruption in the various regions of Namibia    To determine the common form of corruption in the various regions of Namibia  2    To examine the effectiveness of the current strategies aimed at combating corruption in  Namibia 1.4 Research questions    The following questions seek answers from the research:    What are the regional variations in corruption cases and impact in Namibia?    What is the common form of corruption in the various regions of Namibia?    How effective are the current strategies aimed at combating corruption in Namibia?
