Report: Over 10,000 people reported corruption since 2012
A report, released today, shows most of the crimes were reported in Gauteng.
JOHANNESBURG - Corruption Watch's latest report reveals that over 10,000 people have reported corruption since the organisation's inception in 2012.
The report, released today, shows most of the crimes were reported in Gauteng.
In its latest report, the watch dog highlights the power of public participation in the fight against corruption.
The organisation's David Lewis says last year saw a significant increase in the number and quality of tip-offs.
"People, I think, have really started to understand clearly how to distinguish corruption from many other grievances that they have."
Lewis says this signals a step in the right direction.
"We haven't reached a stage in South Africa, and we must avoid doing so, where people are accepting corruption as a way of life that they can do nothing about and they just have to accept."
The report has also found that high levels of corruption were reported last year at South Africa's schools, license and traffic departments as well as immigration centres.
