Cameroon slips from 145th to 153th in 2017 in the corruption perception index

Business in Cameroon | Once again, Cameroon slips in the 2017 corruption perceptions index of transparency international.

Indeed, in 2016, it was 145th , however, it is now the 153rd out of 180 countries and territories. This means that the country’s rank has decreased by 8 points.

Furthermore, out of the 100 score, Cameroon scored just 25 while the average is 43. In 2016, the note was 26/100 and in 2015, it was 27/100. From this index, it can be deduced that Cameroon is the 28th world’s most corrupt country.

The top 10 of the most corrupt countries is as follows: Somalia (9/100), South Sudan (12/100), Syria (14/100), Afghanistan (15 /100), Yemen (16/100), Sudan (16/100), Libya (17/100), Guinea-Bissau (17 /100), Equatorial Guinea (17/100) and North Korea (17/100).

The least corrupted countries are New-Zealand (89/100) and Denmark (88/100).

According to Transparency international, despite actions against corruption in the world, most of the countries are making slow or no progress in ending corruption. “Further analysis of the results indicates that countries with the least protection for press and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) also tend to have the worst rates of corruption”, Transparency commented.

For the record, Transparency international celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

      You owe impressionable young persons a duty to pick and choose the correct words, the appropriate expressions, correct sentences to express ideas that are factual and sensible. They do not deserve adulterated, substandard expressions and punctuations to face a challenging and demanding world ill-suited to school dropouts.

      • @JD, What a take-down! You have totaled his English language prowess! Those ‘impressionable young persons’ may now be referred to linguistic scrapyards in the slums of Lagos, Freetown, or Abakwa. Judging by the assailant’s name, they will have to make a pit stop somewhere around Ngohketungia!

    • @bah acho. Thanks very much for your inspiring words. They live in America, where they are 2 nd class citizen, and where racial divide is the most significant in the whole western world, but they spend all their energy to find flaws in the only place they would ever call home. Slave mentality. Big words , empty brain. I live here too, in the Carolina’s, so I know what I’m talking bout.

  4. With this, it can emerge it 2035. Bravo Mr. Biya and cpdm.
    Did they do the compilation taking into the account, the Magu Magu, that took
    place in Nigeria during the abduction of the Ambazonian IG members in Abuja?
    Just thinking loud.

    • At least you are still alive in Benin Bah. After being deported from the Metropole, you did not have the balls to set up shop in Mvengwi. You chose another French colonial outpost and you are naturally enjoying your language of thievery there. Hope you can now set up all the industries you have been fantasizing or is it harping about for an eternity. When you start exporting Eru, egusi, to Paris, Beijing , as your dear Vietnamese do, please let us know, we will be your prospective customers. You are a case study of the new humain one-sided deportation France is fooling Africans about and we would like to write some thesis on you!
