Baloyi warns corrupt officials

2010-12-09 22:23

Pretoria - Public Service Minister Richard Baloyi on Thursday criticised the practice of suspending officials suspected of wrongdoing on full pay, saying tis needed to be stopped.

He said gone were the days when public servants only recited their code of conduct without internalising and making it their way of life.

Public servants needed to remember that their code of conduct made no room for corruption, he said at an International Anti-Corruption Day summit in Pretoria.

Three key things that needed to be addressed to ensure the government won the war against corruption included the manner in which cases were being investigated, discipline and strategic information management, he said.

Referring to the suspension of officials, he said: "We'll make sure that it is taken care of and becomes a thing of the past."

Baloyi said if need be they would go to Parliament to ensure that legislation to this effect was created.

      I fully agree Hannah. What Wikileaks reveal may be horrendous for some, it could perhaps do some good for others. The difference comes that unlike overseas countries who's leader might acknowledge their mistakes and even resign over them, no doubt our leaders will make excuses and try and justify them as they always do. You know at the end of the day it will all be Apartheid's fault.

    He forgot to throw in the customary "ZERO TOLERANCE" catch phrase; even his own colleagues are also laughing at him.

    @baloyi! If u want to fight corruption u must start at the top officials and go down to the cleaners. U must also stop placing your corrupt comrades on special leaves and investigate their matters for more than 5 years. Clean ur house first surely you will win.
