Are Africans Corrupt by Nature?. "Corruption is the abuse of public or private office for personal gain. It includes acts of bribery, embezzlement, nepotism or state capture. It is often associated with and reinforced by other illegal practices, such as bid rigging, fraud or money laundering."
While Africa includes only about a quarter of the world's countries, it is home to fully half of the 30 most corrupt governments, according to Transparency International. There are no African countries listed among the 30 least corrupt administrations. - Barack Obama
I am sure there is corruption everywhere. Why is it that it is in Africa that it is so pervasive it is one of the biggest challenges of development? Are Africans corrupt by default? Or could corruption and development be explained differently?
