Gauteng sets up corruption intervention council

To fight corruption and promote clean governance, integrity and ethics, the Gauteng provincial government (GPG) has established a civil society-led Ethics and Anti-Corruption Advisory Council. Premier David Makhura on Tuesday said the establishment of the council was a “great step” in efforts to eradicate corruption and promote integrity and ethics in the public sector, adding that it would become the anticorruption watchdog of the province and help the GPG to more effectively deal with corruption whenever it occurs.
