BOTSWANA AGAIN RATED "LEAST CORRUPT IN AFRICA" BY TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL

Transparency International (TI) has released its 2015 Corruption Perception Index (CPI) in Berlin. This Office is pleased to announce that, for the 20th year in a row, Botswana was cited as being the least corrupt country in Africa, as well as among the least corrupt countries in the world.

Botswana is ranked 28 out of 168 countries, up three places from last year, in the latest survey, with an overall score of 63. Botswana's standing thus placed it within the top fifth of all surveyed nations, as well as above almost two thirds of the nations of Europe. In Africa, Botswana remains the only country to score above 60.

 TI is the leading international non-governmental organisation devoted to fighting corruption worldwide. Its annual CPI index reflects the perceptions of business people, academics and risk analysts, both resident and non-resident. It is, moreover, a composite index, drawing on a range of additional expert and business surveys.

Botswana's success in the annual survey over the years has been attributed to our zero tolerance approach to corruption buttressed by the putting into place of multiple oversight institution, such as the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC), Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Board (PPADB), the Competition Authority and the Financial Intelligence Agency. Additional initiatives have included the designation of a dedicated High Court Judge to deal with cases of Corruption, the establishment of the DPP Anti-Corruption Unit and the introduction of anti-corruption curricula in schools and training institutions.
