Angola rose to 116th place in the Corruption Perceptions Index

Angola maintained the trend of recent years in the fight against corruption, rising to 116th place in the Corruption Perception Index, reaching 33 points on a scale ranging from zero to 100, according to a released report.


This year's edition of the Corruption Perception Index (CPI), prepared by the non-governmental organization (NGO) Transparency International, shows that in statistical terms, Angola rose 20 places in the 2021 CPI compared to this year, ranking 116th out of 180 countries and territories.

"President João Lourenço's ongoing commitment to eradicate systemic corruption in the country is having an effect, including through stricter laws", highlights Transparency International, stressing that Angola has presented a "significant improvement in recent years", gaining 14 points since 2018.

The NGO adds that the Public Prosecutor's Office recently asked Interpol to issue an arrest warrant against Isabel dos Santos, daughter of former President José Eduardo dos Santos, with the country's Supreme Court ordering the seizure of her assets.

"However, there remains concern that corruption investigations are politically motivated and that the government party [Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola] may target the opposition", stresses the NGO.

The trend over the last five years resulted in an increase of 14 points, and considering the last 10 years, the increase was 11 points.

The CPI was created by Transparency International in 1995 and since then has been a benchmark in the analysis of the phenomenon of corruption, based on the perception of experts and business executives on the levels of corruption in the public sector.

It is a composite index, that is, it results from the combination of corruption analysis sources developed by other independent organizations, and ranks 180 countries and territories from zero (perceived as very corrupt) to 100 points (very transparent).

In 2012, the organization revised the methodology used to build the index to allow comparison of scores from one year to the next.
