While Zimbabweans are of the belief that corruption is on the rise in the country, they are afraid of confronting the scourge or reporting it, a survey by renowned think-tanks Mass Public Opinion Institute and Afrobarometer, has revealed.
The survey carried out in the later part of 2014 also shows that Zimbabweans are dissatisfied with government efforts to combat graft.
“Majority of adult Zimbabweans believe the level of corruption in the country has increased over the past year. Coupled with this is the public sentiment by a large majority that the Government is doing poorly in its fight against the corruption scourge. Further, for a variety of reasons including fear of adverse consequences, incidents of corruption are underreported,” the report said.
