These Are The 21 Most Corrupt Countries In Africa; 2018 Ranking

The 21 most corrupt countries in Africa have been revealed following Transparency International’s recent edition of the Corruption Perceptions Index, a global ranking of fairness across the world.

According to Transparency International, the index uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean.

Sadly, at least, 120 countries out of the 180 countries in the ratings scored below 50 with more than 50 countries scoring far below 30.

The data, which was produced from analyses from business people, journalists, and civic organisations, has South Sudan and Somalia as the most corrupt in Africa as well as the world.

Business Insider SSA presents to you, a list of low-scoring 21 African nations, which have usually assumed poor performance in recent years. Sadly, these African countries, mostly situated in the Sub Sahara region of Africa scored below 30.
