Cape Town - There are four things needed to fight corruption, namely a strong political will; a free judiciary; a free press and an independent and active civil society, according to Gerrie Nel, head of a private prosecutions unit at civil rights group Afriforum.

Nel is a former state prosecutor and became a regular on television during the trial of Oscar Pistorius.

"South Africa already has three of the four requirements shown globally to be needed to fight corruption," Nel said as a keynote speaker at the convention and expo of the SA Property Owners Association (SAPOA) in Cape Town. He insinuated that the only aspect lacking of the four is a strong political will to fight corruption.
