Since 1995, Transparency International has published an annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) ordering the countries of the world according to "the degree to which corruption is perceived to exist among public officials and politicians". The organization defines corruption as "the abuse of entrusted power for private gain".

The 2003 poll covered 133 countries; the 2007 survey, 180. A higher score means less (perceived) corruption. In the period from 2002 to 2010 Tanzania's highest score was 3.2 on the Index - only 62 countries scored lower. On this basis Tanzania is significantly more corrupt than Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Argentina, Egypt, Mexico, Liberia, Cuba and Brazil

Tanzania is a country of people whose existance is based on lies, deceipt and corruption of every possible imaginable (and unimaginable) type; this makes a difficult backdrop for anyone who aims for a Christadelphian life style based on truth, honesty and righteousness.
