Bribery has increased in Africa, and South Africa has been named as a corruption hotspot in the 2016 anti-bribery and corruption survey.
According to the survey, conducted by law firm ENSafrica, this was denting the country’s global image as an investment destination.
The Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Uganda were also viewed as bribery hotspots.
The survey was conducted by interviewing 132 companies, 80% of them operating in South Africa.
It was designed to gauge perceptions regarding anti-corruption compliance commitment to observe local and global requirements, and ascertain how these processes compared to general best practice.
