The East African Bribery Index 2013

The East African Bribery Index, conducted since 2009, is a governance tool developed to measure bribery levels in the private and public sectors in the region. 2013’s report recorded responses on bribery from 10,491 respondents across the five East African countries of Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and Tanzania, comparing bribery tendencies across key public sectors including medical services, education, water, judiciary, the police and civil registration.

The need for the governments in the region to strengthen anti-corruption interventions as a precondition for sustainable development cannot be overstated. Though the East African Bribery Index captures cases of petty bribery, the same may be indicative of weaknesses in the systems likely to support and perpetuate other forms of corruption.
