South Africa has made a better showing on the 2020 Global Defence Integrity Index, released this week by Transparency International Defence & Security. The country rose above the halfway mark to end with a score of 57/100, eight points better than the G20 average of 49/100. This also takes it out of the 62% of countries that scored 49 or less.
