South Africa has comprehensive anti-corruption laws yet even though the framework is sound, a lot needs to be done to enforce and build a culture of accountability. Corruption will be a ‘hot button’ election issue as parties seek to differentiate themselves from the African National Congress (ANC). The ANC itself will try to convince voters that it is on the path to organisational renewal. This seminar will examine what the major political parties are saying about how to stop corruption.
This event is co-hosted with the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference Parliamentary Liaison Office.
