Written by on 16 September, 2020

Church leaders in the province have urged government to do more to root out corruption within the different departments amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

They’ve held a silent prayer and protest outside the Premier’s office in Maritzburg.

The Archbishop of the Catholic Church in Durban, Wilfred Napier, says millions of people are being affected because funds are being mismanaged and are not reaching the intended public projects.

The Churches also says it supports the measures done by the provincial government in efforts to fight corruption.

This follows the announcement by the province that it will publicly announce the names of the companies that were awarded tenders and tasked to service the people as the country battles Covid-19.

Napier says as church leaders they applaud the move by premier, Sihle Zikalala, of showing the public the names of the people who were granted contracts which some failed to deliver on.

Napier says churches are also committed in dealing with corruption in prayer.
