This edition of the Journal of African Transformation presents interesting but critical articles, mostly focused on the problem of corruption in Africa, from different perspectives. Corruption remains heinous to Africa’s development prospects. It undermines the capacity of public institutions and their ability to deliver services efficiently and effectively, increases the cost of doing business, promotes rent-seeking behaviour, distorts resource allocation, detracts investments, deepens social inequalities, and systematically erodes the credibility and legitimacy of governing institutions and authorities. While it may be difficult to measure the actual cost of corruption, its monumental impacts are quite palpable in Africa’s continued underdevelopment.
