Example text

Corruption can now be defined against that foregoing background. The term corruption comes from a special form of the Latin verb to break, rumpere – which implies that something is badly broken (Tanzi, 1994). This something might be a moral or ethical code or, more often, an administrative rule or a law. The person who breaks it derives therefrom some recognizable benefit for him/herself, family, tribe, party, or some other relevant group. In this chapter, corruption is seen, first and foremost, as the utilization of official positions or titles for personal or private gain, either on an individual or collective basis, at the expense of the public good, in violation of established rules and ethical considerations, and through the direct or indirect participation of one or more public officials whether they be politicians or bureaucrats.

This is a considerable sum and it is equivalent to about 805 per cent of the amount that Africa (excluding North Africa) received in net official development assistance in 1995. , 1996). Undoubtedly, some of this capital flight represents legitimate transfers abroad. However, the great majority is derived from corrupt activities involving public officials. Since capital is scarce in Africa and is much needed to bolster the development effort, its outflow from the region, on a large scale, is a very disturbing matter.

In Nigeria, for example, the lack of exemplary ethical leadership has contributed to a fragmentation of political life which continues to channel public service loyalty away from the policy process and the abstract state back to themselves in a gross display of corruption (Brownsberger, 1983). The final factor has to do with sociocultural norms. In Africa, the widespread existence of personalism results in significant loyalties toward one’s family, tribe, and friends. Such loyalties are at the expense of loyalty to the state for they often require the contravention of rules and regulations to maintain them.
