The 2022 Corruption Perception Index has been released, with Botswana scoring 60 points.

This makes it the first country on the African continent named the most non-corrupt in the index.

The index, which looked at perceptions about corruption in 180 countries around the world, also showed that “most countries are failing to stop corruption.”

According to details on the website of transparency.org, the organisers of this index, the rankings are done by looking at the levels of public sector corruption, scoring on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).

The country listed as the cleanest when it comes to corruption in the world is Denmark, with a score of 90.

Cabo Verde, with a score of 60, is the second country on the continent, with Rwanda (51 points) following in that order as the third.

Mauritius (50 points), Namibia (49 points) and Benin (43 points) follow right after, with Ghana (43 points) being the 7th on the list of African countries featured in the index.
