Ghana’s shocking corruption levels were in the news again this morning. Here are some fresh numbers from Transparency International in collaboration with AfroBarometer:
- An estimated 75 million Africans paid a bribe in the last 12 months.
- 76% of Ghanaians say corruption has increased over the last 12 months, only South-Africa has a higher figure. 75% of Nigerians say the same.
- 36% of public service users in Ghana payed a bribe in the last 12 months.
- 53% of Ghanaian believe ordinary people can make a difference in the fight against corruption.
I wholeheartedly recommend a download of the full 49-page People and Corruption: Africa Survey 2015 report here filled with infographics and analysis! See especially Anti-Corruption progress in Senegal on p. 11.
Change is possible!
