African Citizens Fighting Corruption

Entry Date Mar 12 2019 // Newsletters

Corruption activities account for 5% of the USD 50 billion that Africa wastes on illicit funds flow, according to the Mbeki’s report. Furthermore, 94% of the 34,000 African children interviewed in 2018 admitted that corruption has a negative impact on their lives, as reported by UNICEF. And regrettably, only 5 African countries scored above 50 out of 100 on good governance, according to Transparency International’s annual report. Though these figures show how corruption has gotten out of hand withinthe African continent, they do not always accurately reflect the everyday reality of the African citizen in the face of this scourge. Beyond figures, the human aspect of corruption should not be overlooked.
