Apparently, the governments of Mauritius, Rwanda and Bostwana are doing a great job in governance. They rank as the top 3 most well-governed countries in sub-Saharan Africa, based on the 2019 Index of Economic Freedom. Whereas, Eritrea, Congo and Zimbabwe are the 3 most poorly-governed countries based on the same index.
Why? Because they either ranked well or poor in most of the important criteria for measuring good governance and citizens' wellbeing. The criteria include:
- law, order and justice
- revenue and discipline government spending
- stability in prices of goods & value of currency
- ease of doing business, flow of investment and so on.
