Corruption Watch will be amplifying its anti-corruption message in Limpopo and expanding its footprint to communities where its presence has previously been limited. The impact of corruption is most keenly felt by those who rely on government services and resources for their basic needs. By taking the message directly to communities, Corruption Watch aims to raise awareness of its numerous channels for people to report corruption as and when they experience it in their cities and municipalities. In 2016 the organisation received 4 391 reports of corruption, focused largely on areas such as schools, housing, health and licensing sectors.
The visit to Limpopo will include a series of activities at various community locations including schools, clinics, FET colleges, town halls and shopping centres from 22 August to 2 September 2017.
Members of the media are invited to attend these activities, in particular the following events:
