Zimbabwe has shown no improvement in curbing corruption. That’s according to the latest Corruption Perceptions Index compiled for the 2018 year. The Index rates Zimbabwe with a score of 22, the same as the year before.

The New dispensation has showed no efforts to fight corruption.

The 2018 Corruption Perception Index, a global index that measures the level of corruption across the world, was released Tuesday by Transparency International. The Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. More than two-thirds of countries score below 50 on this year’s CPI, with an average score of just 43.

Zimbabwe ranks 160 out of 180 countries.

In Africa, Seychelles was the least with a score of 66, Botswana, which scored 61, and Cabo Verde, which scored 57. Namibia completes the top five.

The best performing country was Denmark with a score of 88 and the worst preforming country was Somalia, with a score of 10.

Transparency International also called for supporting a free and independent media and ensuring the safety of journalist and their ability to work without intimidation or harassment.
