    Corruption in East Africa will hinder the progress of a five-nation bloc to form a single market and increase investment, an anti-corruption watchdog said Thursday.

    Earlier this month Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi began operating as a single market with one set of regulations with an ultimate goal of creating a federation.

    Transparency International-Kenya said in a report released Thursday that Burundi is the most corrupt country in the five-nation bloc. Kenya was named as the most corrupt last year, but that survey did not include Burundi and Rwanda.

    "The region will only firmly entrench itself on the path to economic and social development after inefficiencies necessitated by corruption are effectively confronted," said the survey, which was prepared by the local chapter of the Berlin-based global anti-corruption group.

    "Corruption threatens to hold back the attainment of the objectives set out by the member states. Key governance and enforcement institutions as well as service institutions continue to dominate the list of bribery-prone institutions in the region, compromising accessibility to and the quality of services offered," the group said.

    The survey found that 36.7 percent of the people in Burundi had been asked for bribes, while Uganda and Kenya also scored above 30 percent. Tanzania came in at 28.6 percent.

    By contrast, the number of people who reported being asked for a bribe in Rwanda was very low, said Lisa Karanja, the deputy executive director of Transparency International in Kenya.

    The group interviewed almost 10,500 people in person across the five countries between January and March. Those interviewed were asked whether they had encountered institutions where bribes were demanded for services, if they paid and whether they received the services sought after payment.

    Transparency International said the margin of error ranged by country from 1.72 percent to 3.36 percent.

    The Burundi Revenue Authority, Burundi police and Kenya police were the top three most corrupt institutions in the region.

    Alfred Khang'ati, an assistant minister in the office of Kenya's prime minister, urged Transparency International to also research the people giving bribes and then announce their names publicly.

    "Once we deal with the bribery givers to a certain extent you will have dealt with the bribery takers," Khang'ati said.

    Tanzania inaweza kua imetoa rushwa kwa hao reseachers ili isiwekwe nafasi ya most corrupt East African country. Wabongo nux. Na kama kweli kuna waliotufunika kwa rushwa, basi wanakiona cha moto.

    Stu.pid minister! Hajui hata mbinu zinavyotumika kufanya utafiti. Napenda kumfahamisha huyu waziri wenu kuwa ili kupata watu wataojibu bila woga, wakati mwingine tafiti nyingi zanaahidi watu kutotaja majina yao. Lengo la tafiti ni kupata hali halisi sio majina ya watu.

    Kazi ya kutafuta watoa na wapokea rushwa ni ya serikali yenu na sio international transparency. La kushukuru ni kwamba umepata ukweli, vipi utaushughulikia ni kazi kwako. Ukipenda ishi nao!!!! A Zombie minister

    In fact there isn't a research done, the comments by individual citizens is what determines the end result. you can also vote online at the TI site.

    Corruption is a cancerous desease, and once infected in society it keeps spreading!
    What we think to be corruption is a national pastime in other countries!
    There are several remedies from different nations:
    1 Chinese dose-culprits are rounded up and shot!
    2 American dose-culprits are taken to courts and jailed
    3 British dose-culprits are given a tongue lashing(BAE saga?)
    4 Italian dose-what is corruption?, mama mia!!
    5 Kenyan dose-he who exposes corruptuon is sought out and dealt with
    6 Tanzanian dose-TAKUKURU never sees anything

    Concluding from no 1 to 6 there is absolutely NO corruption in Tanzania!!!

    Ama kweli ukistaajabu ya Musa utaona ya filauni! Yani, uozo wote ulipo bongo bado tunaonekana sisi ni wazuri au afadhali! Basi bila shaka hao wengine ni wagonjwa mahututi.

    Please get a piece of words from the president of TZ CONCERNING CORRUPTION in TZ

    HOTUBA YA RAIS WA JAMHURI YA MUUNGANO
    WA TANZANIA, MHESHIMIWA JAKAYA MRISHO
    KIKWETE, AKIAGANA NA BUNGE LA JAMHURI
    YA MUUNGANO WA TANZANIA, UKUMBI WA
    BUNGE, DODOMA, 16 JULAI, 2010


    Mapambano Dhidi ya Rushwa na Maadili ya Uongozi
    Mheshimiwa Spika,
    Ahadi yangu ya kuongeza kasi ya mapambano dhidi ya rushwa, ubadhirifu wa mali ya umma na matumizi mabaya ya madaraka nchini tumeitimiza. Tumekemea vitendo vya kutoa na kupokea rushwa na kuchukua hatua za kisheria na za kinidhamu kwa wahusika pale ilipobidi kufanya hivyo. Tumetunga Sheria mpya na kali zaidi na tumepitisha mkakati mpya wa kupambana na rushwa. Tumeunda upya chombo cha kuzuia na kupambana na rushwa (TAKUKURU). Sasa TAKUKURU ina ofisi katika kila wilaya na tumeiongezea uwezo wa kibajeti na rasilimali watu na vitendea kazi.
    Juhudi hizo, zinadhihirisha utashi mkubwa wa kisiasa tulionao wa kupambana na rushwa na matumizi mabaya ya madaraka. Kwa sababu hiyo, katika miaka mitano hii, tuhuma nyingi zimechunguzwa, kesi nyingi zimefikishwa Mahakamani ikiwa ni pamoja na zile za rushwa kubwa.

    Mapambano bado yanaendelea. Katika kipindi cha miaka mitano iliyopita tumepeleka Mahamani kesi za rushwa 780. Idadi hii ni kubwa kuliko kesi zote za rushwa zilizopata kupelekwa Mahakamani katika kipindi cha miaka 20 kabla ya hapo, ambazo zilikuwa 543. Kati ya kesi hizo 780 Serikali imeshinda kesi 160. Katika kipindi cha miaka 20 kabl a ya hapo (yaani kuanzia 1985 – 2005) Serikali ilishinda kesi 58 tu. Mapambano bado yanaendelea.
