Sudan’s standing on corruption index rating worsens in 2012


December 5, 2012 (WASHINGTON) – Sudan’s ranking on corruption perception index is only better than Afghanistan, North Korea and Somalia in 2012, according to a report released today by an anti-corruption watchdog.

Transparency International’s (TI) Corruption Perception Index, measures perceptions of public sector corruption around the world based on surveys taken of business executives and experts.

Sudan now stands at 173 out of 174 compared to 177 out of 182 in 2011. Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan moved ahead of the East African nation since last year.

Earlier this year Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir established an anti-graft agency in response to growing concern over corruption and what is seen as lack of accountability in that area. However so far nothing has emerged from the agency on its corruption probe.

Sudanese officials including president Bashir have downplayed the level of corruption in the country calling it exaggerated. But the Inspector General’s annual reports to the parliament including this year’s continue to show cases of embezzlement and fraud within the government.

Last month the Inspector General’s said that violations in states have increased by 38.1% compared to the previous reporting period.

He said that for example his office found that the Ministry of International Cooperation used a grant from an unknown source in the amount of 721 million Sudanese pound ($163 million) adding that there was no indication what it was spent on.

The Inspector General further revealed that two grants from Algeria and Qatar did not appear in the books of the finance ministry and its whereabouts are unknown.

    Since 1995, Transparency International (TI) publishes the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) annually ranking countries "by their perceived levels of corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys." The CPI generally defines corruption as "the misuse of public power for private benefit."

    these indexes are a joke! i wouldn’t be surprised when they once claimed sudan is the 3rd failed state while some states couldn’t even feed half their people.
    now saying sudan is the 4th more corrupted state while in some states leaders have stolen $4 billion, about 40% of the countries budget. what about egypt were mubarak took $70 billion? or Libya? Zimbabwe?
    its a joke!!!

        N. Sudanese,
        The survey is a perception one and based around the public service.
        If you think we have no corruption in the govt then you really are blind.. only a few weeks you were acknowledging that there was corruption but because it was smaller than S Sudan it was ok.
        S Sudan will be in the survey next year and I think we will find them down the bottom with Sudan

          i didn’t deny that there is no corruption in sudan, yes there but not as claimed on the article. once they said bashir stole $9 billion, the next week british banks denied that claim. in south sudan, the leader stole 40% of the countries budget. in egypt mubarak stole $70 billion. let alone libya and zimbabwe, they didn’t mention them at all, therefor the index is a joke!!!

Just lie to your own people; not to the rest of the world. Tell yourselves in Sudan you’re # 1 economically; who cares as long as you don’t come and beg South Sudan for $ 3 billion dollars.

          My brother in color ( black man like me). Why are you calling your own color these names ? I should not be surprised because people who are fake are always very dangerous to their own people. But remember son of a thief in Khartoum. God created two colors only for human being, that is black and white. Any color between them is a man made. Son of a thief. Shut up.

          You are stupid, very stupid. Let me help you. Yes, US dollar is below British Pound, that is a fact, but if USA $ starting falling like what is happening in Sudan, USA becomes a poor country. About Egypt, Egypt has no future. This is a country where population is increasing everyday and they do have any resources in the country including water. Nile water will be blocked.

    Corruption is the plague of living being, a disease that every society suffers from to a certain extent and may affect an individual directly or indirectly. It is defined as the impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle; in one way or another a person or a corporation either benefits through unfair means from a certain advantage or is hindered due rights, resulting in social and economic

    This year, India is ranked below neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka and China, while Afghanistan, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh fared much worse than India when it came to corruption in public sector undertakings.
    Sri Lanka, which is slowly limping back to normalcy after a three-decade civil war, is ranked at 79 while China is ranked at 80.

      and if this project was left for those thieves it would had never seen the light till the judgement day), building big dams (they just finished upgrading Al-Rowsairs dam second phase),Sugar factory (White Nile Sugar Factory and now working on phase 2 to boost up the production and fill the consumption gap), building roads, etc.

        It is well known that corruption is the enemy of development and never go along together, more development that means less corruption and this is not the case in Sudan having the fact that Sudan doesn’t receive loans from the International bank and completely under the west and US embargo and was able to finish all that infrastructure big projects successfully!

          I believe South Sudan should come number in that list because there is no law in South Sudan that punishes the thieves, in South Sudan, thieves receive just a letter form their president to return the money they stole and that’s it!
          The rejection of South Sudan application to become a member with East Africa Community (EAC) countries is like a big slap on the face!

          repondre message

          • 6 December 2012 14:13, by Jalaby

            I think the real reason behind the rejection because these countries (EAC) don’t want to have thieves among them, one rotted onion will make the whole basket of onion rot! ministers are thieves, governors are thieves, managers are thieves, accountants are thieves,etc!
            The ongoing cattle raiding in the south is another reason for the rejection I guess!

                    How much development took place in our country in the first 18 months after we got indepedence?
                    Not much that is for sure.
                    You seem to forget that we have had 56 years of indepedence so naturally our country is more developed.
                    I assume you know that the first coup in our country was in 1958 and in the first 2 yrs there had been bad crops, political infighting and little development.
