Somalia becomes world number one corrupt country in the world since President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud was re-elected in May 15th 2022. He handed over government contract tenders to his two wives and his sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, uncles and relatives. That is why Hassan Shekih is a example of corruption and that is why Somalia is still the number one corrupt country in the world.

Last year, South Sudanese rights activists said that politicians and government agencies had condoned corruption.

This was after the United Nations Human Rights Committee released a report showing that the South Sudanese government has embezzled 73 million dollars since 2018.

The UN report followed a major corruption scandal in which President Salva Kiir was accused of ordering his finance and economic planning minister Athian Diing to cancel a sovereign bond worth $650 million.
