The State Capture Inquiry recommendation that whistleblowers be rewarded if the evidence they give results in the recovery of looted cash, is a positive step and should not be abused.

This is according to Active Citizens Movement (ACM) spokesperson Yashica Padia who told News24 that if the recommendation was taken forward, then they would welcome discussions around it.

"It is a positive recommendation, but people should not abuse it," she said on Wednesday.
