Cope calls on Home Affairs minister to address corruption
The party has urged Malusi Gigaba to do more to tackle corruption at Home Affairs offices in the country.
This follows reports that a number of Home Affairs officials are demanding bribes from locals and foreign nationals who visit the offices to renew documents.
Cope spokesperson Dennis Bloem says it's shocking that a third of foreigners have reported experiencing corruption and personally making payments to security guards, police, interpreters and Home Affairs officials.
"There's a very serious problem that Cope can't understand why the minister and the department cannot wipe up that corruption."
