Deputy Public Protector Advocate Kevin Malunga says South Africa’s biggest challenges in fighting corruption is implementation and political will.
Malunga and his staff met up with the Corrupt Practices Investigation Unit in Singapore recently and were impressed with their effective corruption fighting strategies. He says South Africa would benefit from adopting practices similar to those of Singapore's anti-corruption body.
Malunga has pleaded with the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to prosecute more corrupt criminals and forfeit ill-gotten assets.
We really need to walk the talk here… We have a situation where our resources are leaking all over the place, especially in terms of taxpayer’s money.— Kevin Malunga, Deputy Public Protector
In terms of the letters of the law, we have a good thing going. But implementation is another thing.— Kevin Malunga, Deputy Public Protector
