Civil society groups to march against corruption
Society groups and trade unions plan to march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria on 19 August.
JOHANNESBURG - Civil society groups and trade unions are to join forces to fight corruption.
Their first plan of action is to march on the Union Buildings on 19 August.
At least 29 civil society organisations and eight unions have banded together to combat what they call "corruption denialism" by the African National Congress and President Jacob Zuma.
Section 27's, Mark Heywood, says corruption has reached a tipping point and they've now decided to take a stand.
"We want to coincide the march with the time when it's expected that Parliament will debate the Nhleko report but secondly, the unions will be making an application to Nedlac for permission to organise a strike on that day to allow workers to participate."
