AFRICA: MANY GOVERNMENTS ARE FALLING BEHIND ON THEIR COMMITMENTS UNDER THE AFRICAN UNION’S ANTI-CORRUPTION CONVENTION

On 4 February, Transparency International reported that the African Union Convention on Preventing and Combatting Corruption (AUCPCC) was adopted by the African Union Assembly in 2003.  It was designed as a shared roadmap for member states to implement governance and anti-corruption measures, the convention aims to eradicate corruption in government and business; but 44 of the 55 member states have ratified the convention, yet there is little information on how well it is implemented in practice.  A new report looks at 3 important areas: money laundering, illicit enrichment and political party funding, as well as the role civil society and media play in fighting corruption.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
