The ANC EC notes the arrest of the two alleged to have stolen more than R4 million in the coffers of OR Tambo Municipality under the pretence of being a service providers. We congratulate the move by the NPA that led to their arrest and now recovered more than 50% of the money stolen.
As the ANC, we will always support any investigation that lead to an arrest against corruption to show how serious we are in fighting corruption.
NPA is one the institutions that were established by government to fight such crimes of corruption. The matter of strengthning the fight against corruption is always our continuous discussion, as we are going to the NGC, it is part of priority matters for discussion.
This sends a strong message to many, that corruption does not pay, it kills the hope of our poor people. We support and have confidence in government law enforcement agencies that they must work tirelessly to root out corruption in government and the society. They must recover every cent stolen in that municipality.
This statement must be attributed to Cde Oscar Mabuyane, the ANC EC Provincial Secretary.
