'SA corruption in dangerous territory'
South Africa has once again scored poorly in the 2014 Global Corruption Perception Index.
JOHANNESBURG - South Africa has once again scored poorly in the 2014 Global Corruption Perception Index.
Corruption Watch has released the survey which shows the country score of 44.
According to Transparency International, a score below 50 indicates a significant corruption problem.
Corruption Watch's David Lewis says this has placed the country in dangerous territory.
"It's the criminal justice system. The impunity enjoyed by politically well-connected people is the largest problem. They're not the only ones, but they're certainly are the largest ones with the strongest knock-on effect on the rest of the system."
In 2012 and 2013, South Africa scored 42 and 43.
