Growing up, I was naive about everything including what was happening around me. As an adult, I have learned that the word CORRUPTION is always in the air. So I decided to research on it. From my research, I discovered that this canker exist throughout the world, including the newest one that happened a year ago which involved the World’s football governing body, FIFA and the African continent in general. So from the African perspective, I wanted to know the LEAST corrupt country on the continent.
Per research, it showed that Botswana is at the peak of the least corrupt economy in Africa. This is a good performance for the country considering their small population which is a little over 240,000 and their status on the continent.
The index, which lists 180 countries and territories according to the level of public sector corruption felt by experts and business people, uses a scale of 0 to 100, with 0 being very corrupt and 100 very clean. This year, more than two third countries were ranked less than 50 for the CPI, with an average rating of only 43.
Botswana is ranked 34th in the world and of 180 countries with 61/100.
