Corruption is becoming prevalent all over the world. Corruption hurts economies, people, and governments.
Take it or leave it, corruption is what some religious people should call the "original sin".
This is derived from man's innate propensity to be corrupt, based on the fact that man's natural instinct to survive is essentially a selfish instinct, which often disregards fairness, equity, or equality especially when the environment is harsh, hostile, or life-threatening. And man, by his very nature, has the potential to be selfish, which is the foundation for such social evils like corruption. Regardless, corruption can be and should be eliminated as it destroys societies and humanity.
Corruption is unethical, immoral, and illegal in many societies, religions, and countries. It needs to be stopped. Private organizations, United Nations, and some governments have attempted to stop corruption or at least have tried to prevent it. They have failed, however.
This site is an attempt to expose countries and departments where corruption is taking place.

MANILA, Philippines — The anti-corruption campaign of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III has led to the arrest of a string of top officials, including three senators, a former national police chief and even his predecessor. But a few prominent people who have been indicted have evaded jail time and are in no danger of imminent conviction. Some experts doubt Aquino’s campaign has had wider impact and question his effectiveness in tackling the scourge that has plagued the Southeast Asian nation for generations. Although corruption remains entrenched, Aquino has made progress by several measures, improving the country’s image among international investors. The Philippines’ ranking in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, which analyzes various factors, including corruption, rose to 47th out of 140 economies from 87th among 133 before Aquino took office in 2010. Corruption, previously the top problem, dropped to third behind an inefficient government bureaucracy and inadequate supply of infrastructure, it said. In Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, a widely used yardstick, the Philippines rose to 85th out of 175 countries last year from 134th place out of 178 in 2010. And corruption cases against “high ranking officials and their cohorts” jumped from 189 in 2009 to 961 in 2013, the most in 18 years, according to Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales, who prosecutes state employees and officials involved in graft. More than 400 more cases were filed last year. “This president has walked his talk,” said Peter Angelo Perfecto, executive director of the Makati Business Club, an influential group of millionaire CEOs that has championed good corporate governance and clamping down on corruption. Others say Aquino’s efforts were spotty and that he failed to target many others, leading them to conclude he only went after his rivals. Ramon Casiple, a prominent political analyst, said Aquino’s campaign “hardly made a dent” because it targeted mainly high-profile opponents and held back on members of his own party, friends and associates.

President Uhuru Kenyatta acknowledged on Friday corruption was a major problem facing the country and said a joint government and private sector team would draw up strategies to combat the vice in one week. Companies and investors cite pervasive graft as one of the biggest challenges to doing business in Kenya. US President Barack Obama raised the issue when he visited in July. Citizens also complain it is an obstacle to law enforcement and provision of public services. "We agreed we are going to work and come up with a framework of dealing with real corruption as well as perceived corruption," Uhuru said after a meeting with business executives. "In a week's time, the team that we put together, comprising both members of government as well as the private sector, would come up and give us a plan on how we shall work together to overcome that challenge," he said. Uhuru said one potential action against graft was to bar firms which do not sign up to a private sector-led code of conduct from participating in government tenders. The EACC says 70 per cent of all corruption in the country relates to procurement, especially in government ministries and departments, where greedy officials and unscrupulous businessmen collude to rip off the public. "Corruption is happening around the entire system, both the private sector and the public sector, and we have got to have concerted effort of how to resolve this," Adan Mohamed, the mIndustrialisation CStold Reuters. On Thursday, the United States, Britain and nine other countries pledged to help Kenya to try to beat corruption, promising to step up efforts to prevent funds leaving the country and pushing for those involved in graft to be prosecuted. Deputy President William Ruto said he and the president would lead the fight against corruption and they expected all individuals and institutions to follow suit. "Every public official, e very institution must be accountable," Ruto said. "We are not going to talk. We are not going to have a discussion. We are not going to have a debate because it will not take us anywhere."
