Liberian academic, activist and author Robtel Neajai Pailey discusses her ‘bloodless revolution’ to fight Gbagba (corruption) in Liberia. She states that corruption is not just about private or public sector graft but also the dubious ways in which we all cheat the system. She reminds us all that there is nothing inherently African about corruption.
