This is a fascinating video from Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Minister of Finance of Nigeria, at TEDxEuston from earlier this year. She points out that among the “negativity” in Africa there has been a trivialization of corruption where governments are accused for corrupt practices even when the evidence shows the opposite. She also points out that the most difficult public corruption challenge, in all countries, is election financing. She sees technology innovation as a solution to corruption and asks for ideas at http://www.innovatedemocracyafrica.org/.
