President Macky Sall has taken some significant efforts to combat corruption in Senegal, including the establishment of several anti-corruption agencies, such as the Ministry of the Promotion of Good Governance and the reactivated Court of Repression of Economic and Financial Crime. The prosecution of corruption committed by officials has also increased under Sall's administration.[1]

The investigation into former President Abdoulaye Wade and his administration continues in 2014 after being charged for massive embezzlement and misuse of public funds.[2] Corruption is common among low-level officials and petty corruption is a fact of daily life.[3]
