Stability and Honest Societies

A stable society is nearer to an honesty society. I come across all sort in my work, but a lady called to say, she was given a grant of money to use for a job. "I hired some contractors, they came and did half the job and never came back since to complete the work. I still got the money, should i hire another contractor to complete the work with the same money" .

This may sound simple, but how many people in poor societies will call back to explain about their non-spending of a grant? Hence, with a stable society, a working social safety net, people are more likely to be honest. As Africans, we need to work hard in making our government deliver on stability and a social safety net, this will lower corruption and dishonesty.
