Scopa disappointed by Anti-Corruption Task Team report

Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) chairman, Themba Godi, says the information presented by the Anti-Corruption Task Team (ACTT) does not give a holistic picture about the state of corruption and how government can deal with it.

Godi says the Task Team reported it is investigating cases of corruption amounting to R10.5 billion in government departments.

However, Godi says it failed to provide any information on state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

They can do better in presenting the information. I think we found their information to be scattered, and not flowing in such a way that it is able to give you a holistic picture.

Themba Godi, Scopa chairman

We have been disappointed that this strategic institution that is supposed to demonstrate government's commitment and ability to deal with corruption seem to be all over the place.

Godi says they are also disappointed that the department of monitoring and evaluation in the Presidency and Department of Public Administration, which are members of the ACTT, did not attend the presentation in Parliament.

He says this shows that the ACCT does not take the fight against corruption seriously.

The Task Team will provide information on SOEs next week Wednesday.
