Top 10 Most Corrupt Sub-Saharan African Countries, Ranked by Perception

The 2018 Corruption Perception Index, published by Transparency International, measures the perceived levels of public sector corruption in 180 countries and territories. The index scores on a scale of zero (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). Accordingly, sub-Saharan Africa is the lowest scoring region on the index, and has failed to translate its anti-corruption commitments into any real progress. A region with stark political and socio-economic contrasts and longstanding challenges, many of its countries struggle with ineffective institutions and weak democratic values, which threaten anticorruption efforts. Somalia tops African nations in terms of the perceived levels of public sector corruption and holds the last (180th) rank. It is followed by South Sudan which holds 178th place. Seychelles (28), Botswana (34), and Cape Verde (45) are the top three African countries which are found in a better position. Ethiopia ranked 114 amongst 180 countries with the perceived levels of public sector corruption score of 34.
