Durban - Jay Naidoo says he is “tremendously disappointed” that South Africa once again ranked only 5th in this year’s Ibrahim Index of African Governance. South Africa fell one place - while gaining 0.6 percent in its governance score - since data was first collected in 2000. But it maintained its 5th place (out of 52 African countries ranked) from last year.
“We should be number one,” said Naidoo, former Cosatu general secretary and head of the Geneva Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN).
He is also a director of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, which draws up the African governance index.
