Maseko said while government welcomed such initiatives by civil society, media and business to identify incidents of bribery and corruption in the country and bring it to the attention of law enforcement agencies, government called equally strongly on all South Africans to join the fight against corruption. 

 

“Citizens have no right to complain about public-service corruption when they are the ones offering bribes or trying to circumvent due process,” he said, adding that most public servants, including Metro Police, were hard-working, ethical and committed professionals wishing to contribute to the country’s development.

 

Government, he said, has consistently stated its determination to root out bribery and corruption at all levels. It has made it quite clear that bribery and corruption will not be tolerated and officials found guilty of such conduct will face the full might law. - BuaNews
