Abstract: In this study, the researcher studied corruption and Mogadishu Seaport management in Somalia; with the major objectives which were to establish how fraud affects Mogadishu Seaport management, to investigate the effect of nepotism on Mogadishu Seaport management and to establish how bribery influences Mogadishu Seaport management. The study adopted a cross sectional and descriptive survey research designs. A cross sectional survey was used because it allowed large amount of data to be collected over a short period of time and descriptive survey because data was collected without changing the environment amidst describing the relationship in the variables. A purposive and random sample method was used to select respondents at Mogadishu Seaport management and a total of 150 respondents were used. Both quantitative and quantitative methods were used which applied enabled the use of questionnaires and interview guide tools. A total of 150 questionnaires were distributed and response rate of 50% was achieved. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics through SPSS software package and presented in tables and charts with conceptual interpretation. The study found out that there was a big mismanagement with acts of fraud which highly affected the transparent operation of Mogadishu Seaport management. With one custom officer being quoted to have said “customer now day prefers rather route their cargo through the northern coastal town of Bosasso 1,500 km away or to the rebel-held Kismayu port 500 km south, although the market where they will sell their goods is just 4 km from the Mogadishu seaport.” The study also recommended that; public servant governance should be transformed to reflect the changing needs of the public. All public activities/work should be accessed by any interested party (lifting of secrecy), although confidentiality should be observed. The level of secrecy in public activity, as it is currently in Somalia, promotes corrupt activities by public officials. This study suggests that strong anti-corruption strategies in public enterprises based on the Somalia experience are to be developed with the involvement of all interested parties - the general public, non-governmental organizations, minority parties, church institutions among others. The involvement of all interested parties ensures that acceptable and inclusive anti-corruption strategies are developed.
