The classification of Cameroon as the most corrupt country in the world in 1998 and 1999 made the government more willing than ever to fight corruption in Cameroon. This led to the creation of a commission, The National Anti-Corruption Committee, (CONAC) with its main aim to fight this ill. Corruption is a canker warm which does not affect only Cameroon but the rest of the world. CONAC has contributed so much in the fight against corruption in Cameroon by prevention, implantation of Rapid Result Initiatives (RRIs), recovery of funds, and this omission equally face difficulties of lack of finance, inadequate number of staff, false information about the commission and fake CONAC agents. Measures have been put in place to improve the performance of the this commission i.e. the creation of an institution responsible for the management of seized or confiscated resources, creation and/or revitalization of anti-corruption units in all the ministerial departments, the creation of Rapid Intervention Units in Regions, in the absence of CONAC Regional Antennas, the intensification of the fight against corruption in the private sector through the adoption of Codes of Ethics, the adoption of an anti-corruption law coupled with the practical modalities of its implementation is highly desired to strengthen the anti-corruption drive and to protect whistleblowers. However these measures have not been strongly implemented and if they are not looked into corruption will still remain high in Cameroon. The following recommendations will help the CONAC in the fight against corruption in Cameroon. They are; the creation of institutions responsible for management of seized resources, creation of Rapid Intervention Units in Regions, CONAC should be given greater financial and administrative autonomy to wage an effective war against corruption in Cameroon
