In the public sector the situation is worse and endemic, it has become part of the system. Public procurement policies are always violated,nothing happens without corruption antecedents attached to it,loopholes in the anticorruption laws make it possible for corrupt officials to escape with their loots.One could only excel in the system if you are partisan with culprit elites. The system has really rotten to the extent that nothing happens without material benefits for the corrupt elites. This is what is making meaningful development impossible, and give way for poverty, hungerand starvation, and inequality to florish. Politics has added to the inability of governance to address the issue of corruption at higher places in the public and private sectors. We really need to checkmate corruption at all levels through collaboration with everybody onboard.
