According to President Cyril Ramaphosa, he said there’s a skinny line between all allegations tabled against officialdom who are involved in PPE fraud.
Ramaphosa further stated that in coming years there would be assurance of transparency with procurement which can give taxpayers an insight on what their money is getting used for.
“There is an intense specialise in detecting and prosecuting COVID related corruption and improving transparency in procurement,” Ramaphosa said.
“I have often said that we must look out for a few silver linings beneath this COVID-19 cloud, one among those would be from now on when it involves procurement we’d like to possess transparency. the sort of transparency which will enable our people to understand what the cash that they pay in taxes goes to be used for.”
Ramaphosa blames the country’s labour laws which states that officialdom who are faulted with corruption would be paid fully amidst the allegations. But the president have said they’re going to attempt to develop a special rule for politicians.
The president also said state capture has made it difficult to prosecute some cases thanks to its weakening of important institutions.
However, Ramaphosa said he begun a process that might strengthen institutions just like the NPA and SARS, so as to offer them the prospect to try to to their job.
