The Head of the Special Investigating Unit, Andy Mothibi together with Public Works and Infrastructure Minister, Patricia de Lille, have launched the Infrastructure Built Anti-Corruption Forum.

The forum consists of organs from both the public and private sector and aims to monitor infrastructure projects more effectively and put systems in place to detect and prevent corruption.

The establishment of this forum is in line with the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS) which was approved by Cabinet in November 2020 to help step up the fight against corruption and fraud in the country.

The construction sector has over the years been rocked by a number of scandals.

Speaking during the launch in Cape Town, de Lille says corruption within the built environment has run rampant for too long and people, no matter who they are, cannot be allowed to continue to steal and stifle progress at the expense of the most vulnerable in the country.
