ARE AFRICAN COUNTRIES PREVENTING CORRUPTION AND PROSECUTING RELATED CRIMES?

On 4 February, an article from Transparency International says that when the African Union Convention on Preventing and Combatting Corruption (AUCPCC) was adopted by the African Union Assembly in 2003, it was a huge step towards resolving the continent’s serious corruption challenges. 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.  Today, 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
