What makes people corrupt?
Blank-Title

People become corrupt because of:

·         Extreme poverty and opportunity. A person cannot be corrupt unless there is a chance to be so;

·         Poor leadership, especially by leaders, senior civil servants and top businessmen.

·         Greed and dishonesty. Even rich people can become corrupt ;

·         Lack of ethical standards or codes of conduct that prompt people to act with integrity.

·         A belief that they will not be caught and that even if caught, punishment will be light;

·         Competition for insufficient goods and services.
