Though the world showed some progress according to the Corruption Perceptions Index, most countries still fail to tackle corruption effectively, says Transparency International. Especially countries from East Africa. The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. A country or territory's rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories in the index.
It uses a scale of 0 to 100, zero being the score for the most corrupt country. As always a score below 50 indicates serious levels of corruption in the public sector of a country. In the latest report about corruption level in East Africa , Rwanda was ranked the least corrupt in East Africa with 54 points,was followed by Tanzania with 38, Kenya with 31, Uganda 27 and Burundi 19.
So far the most corrupt country in East Africa region as per the transparency international is South Sudan, this makes it to be the second most corrupt country in the globe followed by Somalia.
