Are we are loosing the fight against corruption?

Transparency International’s recent ‘Corruption Barometer – Africa‘ surveyed 35 African countries. The research shows that more than half of the 47,000 citizens surveyed think corruption is getting worse in their country, and that their government is doing a bad job in tackling it.

Reportedly, more than one in four people who accessed public services, paid a bribe in the previous year. The police topped the list as the most corrupt institution, with 47 per cent of people believing that most or all police are corrupt.
