Complicity should be equated to corruption

One of the legal researchers for the Anti-Corruption Trust of Southern Africa, Adv. Gabriel Shumba was quoted as follows, when he was justifying the definition of corruption as the abuse or complicity in the abuse of private or public power, office or resources for personal gain.

“When governments are aware of the occurrence  of corruption and have the ability to   combat this evil using existing laws and policies, formulating new laws and policies where they do not exist, or strengthening existing laws and policies if they have been demonstrated to be weak, but fails to do so, these governments should be held as being corrupt.”

Do you agree with this perspective? Your views are important in shaping anti-corruption laws and policies.
