Corruption Watch will be amplifying its anti-corruption message in the Western Cape and expanding its footprint in communities where its presence has previously been limited. The awareness drive will include a series of activities at various community locations including schools, clinics, University of Cape Town, traffic departments, taxi ranks and shopping centres. These will run from 17 September 2018 to 21 September 2018.
Since 2012, Corruption Watch has received over 1 000 reports alleging corruption in the Western Cape province. The most common forms of corruption include bribery, irregularities in procurement, embezzlement of funds, theft and irregularities in employment.
Corruption Watch’s public awareness campaign will focus mostly on corruption in schools, and the health and police sectors. 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 improve access to ways for people to report corruption as and when they experience it in their cities and municipalities.
Members of the media are invited to attend these activities; a full programme of events is available.
