Zim Ranked 157 out of 180 in 2017 Corruption Perceptions Index

Zimbabwe has been ranked number 157 out of 180 in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2017 by Transparency International.  According to Transparency International,

The index, which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts and businesspeople, uses a scale of zero to 100, where zero is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. This year, the index found that more than two-thirds of countries score below 50, with an average score of 43.

Since its inception in 1995, the Corruption Perceptions Index, Transparency International’s flagship publication, is the leading global indicator of public sector corruption. The index offers an annual snapshot of the relative degree of corruption by ranking countries from all over the globe.

In 2017, Zimbabwe scored 22 on a scale of 1-100 to finish on position 157. This was a drop from 2016 when Zimbabwe again scored 22 but was rated a little bit higher at position 154.

New Zealand was ranked as the least corrupt country in the world with a score of 89. There are no African countries in the top 10 with New Zealand, Singapore and Canada being the only non-European Countries in the Top 10.
