Namibia

Namibians concerned over rising corruption

todayJuly 4, 2024 17

Background
share close

Afrobarometer has released new data on the state of corruption in Namibia. The survey reveals that two-thirds of Namibians believe corruption is worsening, though this share has decreased recently while a majority think that many government, civil society, and business representatives are involved in corruption. Most Namibians meanwhile feel that the government is performing poorly in combating corruption and that ordinary citizens risk retaliation if they speak out. Here’s Graham Hopwood, the Executive Director at the Institute for Public Policy Research.

 

Graham Hopwood, Executive Director at the Institute for Public Policy Research, further stressed the survey’s implications for governance and public accountability in Namibia. The findings suggest a critical need for enhanced transparency and anti-corruption measures to address public concerns effectively.

Afrobarometer conducts these surveys periodically to provide comprehensive insights into African perspectives on democracy, governance, and quality of life. The latest survey in Namibia involved face-to-face interviews with a nationally representative sample of 1,200 adults, ensuring robust data accuracy.

The findings underscore the urgent need for targeted reforms and strengthened governance mechanisms to curb corruption and restore public trust in Namibia’s institutions.
