Corruption

Afrobarometer’s latest survey shows that although Mauritians still trust their political institutions, they are increasingly concerned about corruption.

In this context, six in 10 (60%) Mauritians said in the latest report by the Independent Commission against Corruption that it was their opinion that high level and small scale corruption had increased over the past three years and the same number believed that corruption could only worsen and a fourth (26.8%) did not expect a change.

Transparency International, in its 2014 report ranked Mauritius 47 out of 175 countries, a slight improvement from the previous survey and the Mo Ibrahim Index of African Governance also ranked Mauritius as one of the best governed country in Africa in its 2014 report.
