Top from the African continent on the Transparency International Index is Botswana at 34 on the ranking, followed by Namibia, Mauritius and Senegal.

Somalia, Syria and South Sudan remained at the bottom, with scores of 10, 13 and 13, TI said.

Meanwhile, the United States slid to 22nd in the world from 18th last year, with reasons not unconnected to the Donald Trump’s style of government.
