Corruption perception index: Cameroon is stagnating in 2018

- Advertisment -

Yesterday, January 29, Transparency International released its annual report on the fight against corruption around the world. Ranked 152nd out of 180 countries evaluated, Cameroon remains in the bottom of the rankings. The country is stalling with 25 points out of 100 in 2018; as much as the year before.

At the national level, the news in the field of corruption is marked by the announcement of the resignation, last weekend, the president of Transparency International Cameroon. Mr. Charles Nguini, whose term ran until next year, has so far refused to discuss the reasons for this unexpected departure. Sources within the institution, however, indicate that a replacement will be found during the month of February.

At the regional level, Transparency International presents a gloomy picture of Africa. Indeed, only eight out of 49 countries were able to score above 43. And with an average of just 32, sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the lowest score.

Among the good students are the Seychelles who prance at the top of the African ranking (28th world) with 66 points. The info clear and sharp. They are followed by Botswana and Cape Verde who scored 61 and 57, respectively. In contrast, for the seventh year in a row, South Sudan (13 points) and Somalia (10 the lowest ratings of the continent.

Transparency International justifies the poor performance of Africa by a predominance of authoritarian or semi-authoritarian regimes on the continent. Which do not constitute fertile ground for the fight against corruption.

Finally, at the world level, the top 3 of the charts of the least corrupt countries is formed by Denmark (88 points), New Zealand (87 points) and Finland (85 points).
