“Corruption is a complex social, political and economic phenomenon that affects all countries. Corruption undermines democratic institutions, slows economic development and contributes to governmental instability. Corruption attacks the foundation of democratic institutions by distorting electoral processes, perverting the rule of law and creating bureaucratic quagmires whose only reason for existing is the soliciting of bribes. Economic development is stunted because foreign direct investment is discouraged and small businesses within the country often find it impossible to overcome the start-up costs required because of corruption”
Corruption is a social phenomenon that has permeated nearly every fabric of our society. It is a catalyst for many other criminal activities. It robs a nation off its heritage and denies the citizenry that which is rightfully theirs. No country is yet immune to its ills yet some countries are more plagued than others. Countries in Africa have reported high levels of corruption which have brought down organizations to their knees and wasted billions of tax-payers money. AGA-Africa is alive to the fact that corruption propagates transnational crime for which it is on the forefront to combat.
