This study “Anti Corruption Policy and Good Governance based leadership in Rwanda” was aimed at finding out the extent to which corruption control policy influences a country’s governance as previous studies have covered the same study but emphasizing on other components of corruption control other than the anti-corruption policy. Therefore, the research was carried out in Rwandan institutions with corruption control and governance in their attributions. Respondents were asked on the above issues through the three components of anticorruption policy which are indirectly reflected to good governance and these components were based on accountability versus corruption control, the rule of law versus corruption control and inter institutional collaboration of anticorruption bodies vis a vis the corruption control exercise. Sampling of these respondents was based on Sloven formula, and through the university research tools final results have proved the extent to which inadequate anticorruption strategies through lack of accountability, impartial rule of law and weak inter institutional collaboration of anticorruption bodies lead to failure to achieve on good governance based leadership. As far as Rwanda is concerned, it was revealed that the country is currently being influenced by inadequate anti-corruption policy thus the country is in a need of an improved anti-corruption policy especially by enforcing the of the rule of law and enhancement of accountability is recommended as well so as to meet a good governance based leadership.
