The phenomenon of financial corruption has become widely dominant in the third world countries. Hence, the present study aims at identifying how press freedom affects the Sudanese newspapers in framing the issues of corruption in Sudan. The study adopted a qualitative research method using in-depth interviews to adequately probe the perspectives of the Sudanese journalists and editors; a purposeful sampling was employed in selecting 20 Sudanese journalists working in both governmental and private newspapers in Sudan. The findings revealed that the legislation is one of the key elements of the development of press industry by the Sudanese government to ensure press freedom. The findings suggest that the government may reconsider the legislation's regarding the press freedom in Sudan. Other future researchers could be needed in order to explore how far the press or media in Sudan are capable of addressing anti-corruption issues in the country.
