Eye on the world: A collective stand against corruption

In “Next up in curbing corruption: South AfricaThe Christian Science Monitor reports that “in the past two weeks, [South Africa], the economic powerhouse of Africa, has witnessed some of the largest protests since the country’s anti-apartheid struggle and the start of pluralistic democracy in 1994. Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets…. The issue of corruption has also united the opposition parties for the first time despite their strong ideological differences.” The popular demand for honest and transparent governance has had a sobering effect on countries with emerging economic prowess on the global market. The Monitor concludes that “young people, now better connected through the internet, know their future depends on honest leaders who believe in rule of law and equality of opportunity.”
