(0 = completely corrupt; 10 = no corruption)
The graph shows perceived corruption of each sub-Saharan African country surveyed by Transparency International over a ten year period. Kenya's score lies flat across this period, at 2.1 out of 10. In 2010, Kenya's rating was above only four other countries, all of whom suffered intense civil wars after independence, threatening the state's very existence - Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia and Sudan.
