Mozambicans fear retaliation if they speak out against corruption, Afrobarometer survey shows

More than half of Mozambicans say they fear retaliation or other negative consequences if they report incidents of corruption, according to the latest Afrobarometer survey.

Even so, an equal proportion of survey respondents believe that ordinary people can make a difference in the fight against corruption. Mozambicans are far more likely to say corruption levels increased, rather than decreased, during the past year, with police perceived as the most corrupt public officials.
