Corruption is now a South African way of life – If we can’t accept that, how can we change it? This is the theme for the exciting, solutions-driven debate to be held in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni on Wednesday. The event is co-hosted by Corruption Watch and Kaya FM and John Perlman – the award winning Kaya presenter – will facilitate a panel discussion which will broadcast during his usual daily slot. The panel will include Corrruption Watch executive director David Lewis and deputy public protector Advocate Kevin Malunga, among others.
There is no doubt that corruption is one of South Africa’s biggest problems. Lewis refers to corruption as a “wicked problem” that will not easily go away without public participation. Corruption affects us all but the poor suffer the most as they depend on government to access basic public services. It also occurs in private businesses, as was seen last year when the Competition Tribunal exposed collusion in the construction sector.
Solutions for its eradication have to come from not only the government but the general public too.
South Africa is more than ready for the public to take a stand and make their voices heard on this matter.
Join Corruption Watch and Kaya FM at Rabasotho Community Hall on Wednesday 16 April from 6pm to 7pm for a frank discussion on how best to fight corruption in our country.
Date: 16 April 2014
Venue: Rabasotho Community Hall, next to Tembisa police station cnr George Nyanga Drive and Andrew Mapheto Drive
