Afra Raymond is an anti-corruption activist from Trinidad and Tobago.
The Caribbean country amassed huge wealth in the 1970s thanks to oil production, he says. But that brought rampant graft — two out of every three dollars earmarked for development has been wasted or stolen, he says.
Raymond doesn’t back down in calling publicly for reform.
That was clear when he spoke for 18 minutes at a Ted event earlier this year in Port-of-Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago.
