Free Speech Translates to Good Governance

Afrobarometer’s report findings state that the more freely Africans can speak their minds, the more confident they are in the performance of their governments

A report, released by the Afrobarometer, has indicated that the more freely Africans can speak their minds, the more confident they are in the performance of their governments.
 
The report found that half of Africans surveyed in 34 countries across the continent say they are ‘completely free’ to say what they think, while another quarter say they are ‘somewhat free’.
 
"Freedom of expression is also consistently linked to better ratings of government performance, especially with respect to government effectiveness in fighting corruption, but also in other sectors such as maintaining roads and managing the economy,” it states.
