Government ready to resurrect National Anti-corruption Forum
Radebe today received a list of demands from civil society groups who took part in an anti-corruption march.
JOHANNESBURG - Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe says government is ready to resurrect the national anti-corruption forum in collaboration with civil society.
Radebe today received a list of demands from civil society groups at the Union Buildings in Pretoria who were joined by around 3,000 supporters in their demonstration.
Some of their demands include lifestyle audits conducted by the Auditor General on senior public representatives every year.
They've described today's marches in both Pretoria and Cape Town as the beginning of an anti-corruption movement.
Unite Against Corruption convenor Zwelinzima Vavi says they marched to the Union Buildings to warn the Presidency that they will not give up the fight for a corrupt free service.
"We will be marching to our schools to demand that there be laboratories, libraries and security. We will make it very hard for them to continue doing the break dance in Parliament."
Radebe says the National Anti-Corruption Forum needs to be reinvigorated.
"The National Anti-Corruption Forum is currently being convened by representatives of civil society. We have noted with deep regret and I emphasise that in government you will find a partner."
The organisers have asked government to respond by 30 November.
