Most corrupted cities of the world and how travellers can save themselves while visiting those areas?

Before getting into the list of those countries who are the most corrupted or support corruption across the globe let us discuss what is corruption? Let us talk about corruption, It is the misuse of power for any kind of private gain, but why does it occur? May be due to make things easy for themselves avoiding any kind of discomfort caused to them. Corruption occurs because of self-interest. e.g., if my son wants an admit in a good medical college but is not meeting the required criteria of the admission process then I might go for corruption and find someone who takes bribe and does the admission process without anyone knowing this not even the principal of the college. But doing this will create a problem for the one who deserve to get admitted there and couldn’t get it because bribe has been offered or rather political power has been used.

There are almost numerous types of corruption occur throughout the globe. Maybe this is why poor people are becoming more poor and thus eventually causing numbers of death because the one who is in the proper age of working for his family is without a job and could not fulfil the requirements of the family.

Somalia is the world’s most corrupt country and it came into existence when the US and the USSR us this place as a battleground. In 2005 Liberia was on 137th rank in Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index while Somalia was on 144th but by 2009 Liberia managed to climb up on 97th while Somalia slipped on 180th and recorded the world’s most corrupt country. Though both of them tried their level best to improve the situations the one used its own country’s resources for self-enrichment and thus results that one improved its condition while other deteriorates to the core. Somalia has no such thing called as government to look at the country’s affair. It can prove dangerous for independent travellers due to conflicts between government and other armed forces and those who are going for a business trip or any other kind of profession must take an expert guide also the US government has issued warning before travelling here and its totally unsafe.
