Which are the most corrupt countries in Africa? Africa is a blessed continent that ought to be one of the leading continents in the world in terms of infrastructure, technology, and general development, but the reverse is the case.
Most of the countries in Africa or even all are free from natural disasters of which much development is respected to be happening in Africa with the wealth therein but the greed of the leaders cant be compared to other continents.
As we all know Africa is a continent rich in natural resources like Gold, Crude Oil, Iron Ore, Diamond, Bauxite, Coal, Cobalt, Uranium, and many more, you find all these resources in almost all the countries in Africa in larger quantities yet there is a decline in development as Africa houses most of the poorest people in the world.
Africa should be greater than any other continent in the world but it is so unfortunate even with the fact that civilization started in Africa.
Taking a look at the research index, it is certain that the most corrupt countries of the world are African countries, all that from greed.
Today’s article will be centered on the most corrupt African Countries, as we will be giving insight into those countries but before we proceed let us quickly talk about corruption and the reason why it is drawing back Africa from progressing globally.
The term “corruption” is a form of a virus that is deepened in most Africans, especially those that hold strategic posts and the leaders in general either politically or even the religious ones.
Likewise, bribery is the order of the day and you can go away with any sin as long as you have money or influence.
The corruption has grown roots to the extent that the upcoming ones are also well trained on how to be corrupt and how to misuse power. The craziest aspect of it is that those corrupt leaders are now placing their uncultured and spoilt children in the system so this isn’t ending soon.
Though we can ascribe the cause of corruption to be poverty that is wrong as the poor ain’t the ones perpetrating the crime but the wealthy ones that got their wealth through stealing of public funds and that is greediness.
With the kind of manpower and natural resources in Africa, the continent shouldn’t be lagging behind in basic amenities and good life for its citizens.
