Bureaucrats a leading cause of death in Nepal?

"Nepalis Pay Up to Rs. 25,000 To Get Work Done" (Kathmandu Post, 24 December 2015)

With high unemployment and low wages, the high cost of bribery and corruption is easily a leading factor in disease and death. People sacrifice time and funds to unethical government officials and middlemen that would otherwise go to essentials (e.g., food, fuel, health care, education).

Without a doubt, corruption is a leading cause of suffering and lost opportunities for people with few rights.
