Johannesburg - Corruption is based on a monopoly of
discretion without accountability, DA leader Helen Zille
said on Friday.
"So if you let sunshine in, and let everybody see
what processes are there, you are less likely to get corruption," she
said, speaking at the unveiling of the party's Gauteng ministerial handbook, in
Zille said the DA-run Western Cape had opened up its
tender processes to public scrutiny, including the hiring of consultants.
"People can observe adjudication process on the
website of the Western Cape province."
Speaking at the event, DA Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi
Maimane said Gauteng had seen immense abuse of state resources under Premier
"During Premier Mokonyane's term of office we have
seen abuse driven from the very top of this administration."
He said R1.2m had been spent on new furniture for the
premier's official residence.
The new handbook would cut costs.
"The handbook would slash the allowed cost of
official vehicles, from 70% to 40% of a member's salary."
It would also limit flights less than eight-hours long to
economy class for all.
Further, it would limit all car rentals to D-class
