Fighting Corruption In Africa As Head Of States Meets
Corruption is a major problem that hinders Africa from developing into a developed continent, and this menace act is growing deeper within institutions of many African countries. According to the Oxford dictionary, corruption is defined as dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery or the process by which a word or expression is changed from its original state to one regarded as erroneous or debased.
Africa must find a lasting solution to this menace if continent leaders and citizens want progress because without a political will from the population, this menace called corruption will not vanish overnight. Africa needs policies that will punish corrupt officials to serve as lessons to those thinking of venturing into corrupt acts. China will be a great example of a country where anti-corruption policies have worked to progress the country.
