Botswana's Corruption Forecast

Forecasted trend:
Stationary
Botswana, the longtime African champion of free elections, autonomous bureaucracy and judiciary, has faced challenges to the quality of its governance over the past decade. There has been some decline in press freedom, and transparency is below its income group average. Botswana should improve the transparency of its land cadaster, building permits, and public procurement, and the government should introduce better oversight for the conflicts of interest of its officials. The country is also faring poorly on de jure transparency by lacking a freedom of information act.

Angola's Corruption Forecast

Forecasted trend:
Stationary
Angola has improved in the past decade on fiscal transparency and e-government, although more progress is needed. The situation remains poor on judicial independence and press freedom, where the country is still lagging among its peers and has hardly improved in the last 10 years. The legacy of government favoritism needs to be gradually eliminated by the removal of administrative and economic privileges for those connected with the party in power: the missing transparency items from the T-Index offer a clear roadmap for this country, starting with public financial and conflict of interest disclosures for politicians, mining concessions, land cadaster and building permits. The number of e-citizens remains too small for a critical mass to constantly demand good governance, although the small free media does its best.
