In 2002 the Government of Zambia established an intragovernmental task force to investigate allegations of corruption against former President Frederick Chiluba and his inner circle. The task force was mandated to prosecute those who had engaged in corrupt conduct, and to recover any state assets that had been stolen by them. This U4 Practice Insight examines the challenges faced by the task force and by the development community which supported its work.
