Corruption erodes trust - Erongo Governor

Speaking at the ACC Song Competition, Erongo Governor Neville Andre says corruption has, for far too long, cost Namibia both economically and socially and eroded trust.

Although Namibia's score remained unchanged at 49 on the 2022 Corruption Perceptions Index, the country actually fell one spot to 59 on the global indicator of public sector corruption.

The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be.
