The World Economic Forum has released its annual corruption index as part of its Global Competitiveness Report.
Using a methodology linked to Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perception Index, the WEF ranks 140 countries out of 100 for the level of corruption within their society.



A score of 100 means a country is entirely without corruption, while 0 is the most corrupt possible. Uganda scored 26.
The countries seen as most corrupt tend to be in Africa, Central America, and the Middle East, in societies with weak legal and governmental systems and widespread poverty.
Africa’s representatives include: Kenya, Guinea, Nigeria, Uganda,, Cameroon, Mozambique, Burundi, Zimbabwe, DRC, Chad and Angola.
