Africa & Corruption
Africa is widely considered among the world’s most corrupt places, a factor seen as contributing to the stunted development and impoverishment of many African states. Of the ten countries considered most corrupt in the world, six are in sub-Saharan Africa, according to Transparency International, a leading global watchdog on corruption. A 2002 African Union study estimated that corruption cost the continent roughly $150 billion a year. To compare, developed countries gave $22.5 billion in aid to sub-Saharan Africa in 2008, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Some economists argue that African governments need to fight corruption instead of relying on foreign aid. But anti-corruption efforts on the continent have shown mixed results in recent years, and analysts fear that major international partners are unwilling to exert leverage over African governments. An initiative for transparency in the extractive industries shows promise but is mostly untested. Some experts suggest African interest in attracting foreign investment will serve to spur more substantive efforts to fight corruption
fight against corruption
The 30th African Union Summit that took place from 22-29 January 2018 has put discussions around corruption at the centre stage. The AU Summit, under the theme Winning the Fight against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation, aimed at deliberating mechanisms for combating corruption and named Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari the African anti-corruption champion for 2018.
