In the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), which was released on Tuesday, Seychelles has kept the top spot for sub-Saharan Africa.

The island country maintained its position for the fifth year in a row, and it once again achieved the 23rd place globally with 70 points in 2022.

Finland was outperformed by Denmark, which finished first with 90 points. With 87 points each, Finland and New Zealand are in second and third place.

On a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 represents highly corrupt and 100 represents clean, the CPI report rates the perception of corruption in the public sector. With a score of 70 points, Seychelles remained in 23rd place globally, just like in 2021.

Major Western democracies like the United States, which performed better than it did the previous year and moved up to 24th place with a score of 69 points, were outperformed by the island state once more.

This is good news for the islands, according to May De Silva, commissioner of the Anti-Corruption Commission of Seychelles (ACCS).

According to a report by seychellesnewsagency, de Silva stated, “We are therefore delighted that this positive action and our tireless efforts to root out corruption by our committed staff and the supportive public has been recognized and that we are able to maintain our global position as the 23rd least corrupt country in the world and remain the least corrupt country in Africa.”
