Corruption Watch wants to hear your stories. If you have been affected by corruption, follow Tebogo’s example and let us know about it.
The information we collect from the public and other sources will be compiled as data. We will then be able to identify where and what kind of corruption is occurring. From this data we will spot patterns that may lead to investigations and/or cooperation with agencies able to prosecute individuals or companies engaged in corrupt activities. Where the data points to repeated, localised, or wide-spread incidents, we can help you enlist the support of civil society institutions to fight the endemic or systemic corruption you have experienced.
Report an incident online
To report an incident, you will need to answer questions on a form on this website. This is important because each answer will be coded into a system to “read” the information and deliver statistics and other analysis developed from the facts of your stories. After you complete the brief form, you will be given the option to provide whatever other information you like.
While the information that you provide concerning the act of corruption that you experience will be available for all to see, your identity will be restricted to a confidential part of the form. You do not even have to fill in the confidential part of the form. In other words, you have the option to remain anonymous, or to give us your details. In the same way, you can name individuals you suspect of corrupt behaviour on the confidential part of the form, but you do not have to do so. Information on the confidential part of the form will only be accessible to a select number of Corruption Watch staff members. However, if you want to take your matter further with Corruption Watch, you will need to provide some form of contact details, a cell number or email address. These details will remain confidential.
The information on the public part of the form will be put together with information from other people, and reported by us. From this you will be able to see the experiences that others have had with corruption and we will be able to identify patterns and ‘hot spots’ of corruption. These may be a particular town or province, a particular government office or public service, or a particular company or economic sector. This information will form the basis for further research and public campaigns.
Facebook and Twitter
We have also set up a Facebook site for you to engage with us – and each other – and to comment about corruption, your experience and the experiences of others, our activities, the website and any other relevant topic you choose.
You can also follow us on Twitter.
By becoming a friend on Facebook or following us on Twitter you will receive regular updates of our activities. We will, from time to time, ask if you or anyone you know has experienced an incident similar to something we are investigating.
You can also send us a short-code SMS, which costs R1 per message. Contact us on 45142. The information that you send on a short code SMS will be included in the data gathered together on the website.
