Mashaba determined to recover public money stolen by corrupt officials

Former head of the Hawks, Shadrack Sibiya has been appointed to head the Anti-orruption Unit aimed at recovering stolen public money by corrupt government officials.

Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says the unit will operate independently of any political interference and without fear and favour.

It is reported that Mashaba is working on a project already initiated by the previous administration.

If they were interested in investigating these cases then tax payers money stolen during their tenure would've been recovered and people would've been sitting in jail.

Mashaba says he is sitting with cases that were submitted when the previous admin was still in office but they decided to ignore them.

He says Johannesburg will be the first to bring back an investigative unit that is similar to the defunct Scorpions.

We are very serious about this particular matter in ensuring that public money is recovered and criminals are put in jail.
