Public Service and Administration Minister Senzo Mchunu says government is committed in fighting corruption in the country.
The minister has been delivering the keynote address at the commemoration of International Anti-corruption day today.
The International Anti-Corruption Day is commemorated annually in recognition of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which was signed in Mexico in 2003.
South Africa is one of the signatories to the Convention, and ratified it in 2004.
This day provides an opportunity for political leaders, governments, legal bodies and lobby groups to join forces against corruption.
Mchunu says this type of crime robs the country of resources and counters all efforts of government to deliver on the public’s expectations.
He adds that there’s a political will to deal with corruption, under the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
