Somalia is once again at the top of the list of the most corrupt countries in the world, according to Transparency International.

Transparency International has released a new ranking, making Somalia the most corrupt country in the world. Somalia fell below its 2019 rankings at 9th, but now ranks No. 1, according to Transparency International.

The report also lists other countries at the top of the list, including South Sudan, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea & Guinea-Bissau.

The report also shows that little progress has been made in the fight against corruption in most of the 180 countries analyzed.

New Zealand, meanwhile, has become the least corrupt country in the world, followed by Denmark and Finland.

The federal government of Somalia has previously opposed the agency’s reports, which it said were unreliable and false.

However, Somalia is currently facing a combination of difficult circumstances, such as drought, floods and a transition situation in the wake of the country’s elections.
