Salga: Zero tolerance of corruption

Salga says commitment and accountability are needed to help root out corruption.

Salga is hosting a three-day anti-corruption summit in Cape Town this week.

CAPE TOWN - The South African Local Government Association (Salga) says municipal officials have to ensure there is a zero tolerance approach to the abuse of state resources.

Salga is hosting a three-day anti-corruption summit in Cape Town this week.

Salga chairperson Thabo Manyoni says delegates will be looking at ways to fight corruption.

"The main issue is to bring a culture of accountability, a culture of self-respect and a culture of commitment to service delivery."

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says corruption is a reflection of society's value system.

"There isn't corruption in government only. We have seen what happened in the collusion by big companies in this country by tendering for stadiums."
