Corruption is defined as “the abuse of entrusted power for private gain”. It is best known as bribery, fraud and theft, conflict of interest, embezzlement and extortion/blackmail, gifts, nepotism and favouritism. It is important to realise that corruption has many faces and does not exclusively take the form of money. To provide a person with a job, services or other favours can also be a form of corruption. It threatens effective programmatic work, good governance, sustainable development, democratic processes and fair business.
