ANC committee to fight corruption

By Sapa | Dec 20, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 38 ]

The committee would have the power to subpoena any member to appear before it.

The ANC conference has resolved to establish an integrity committee at both national and provincial levels to deal with party members accused of misconduct.

The party briefed media on its resolutions on organisational renewal and strategy and tactics in Bloemfontein on Wednesday night.

The ANC is holding its national elective conference at the University of Free State in Mangaung.

ANC Gauteng secretary David Makhura said the committee would be established within three months of the election of the party’s new executive committee.

The committee would have the power to subpoena any member to appear before it.

“The committee will help us nip corruption in the bud. The ANC wants to hold members accountable, and for them to respect the laws of the country,” Makhura said.

The committee would also look into the business interests of members.

Party leaders and public representatives would declare their business interests to the committee. It will also comprise the party’s veterans and elders.

Makhura said earlier the ANC would train its cadres over the next 10 years.

The 1.2 million members would receive political, ethical and ideological training to “rebuild their profile”.

Corruption is a cancer that is poising our society to a slow death. The tender process is flaw because it gets awarded mostly to influential ANC cadres or politically connected individuals. This unfortunately disregards ability and experience to do the job. The examples are endless, to name but a few, the outgoing ANCYL president Julius Malema became an instant millionaire because of political influence. Albeit, political disgrace has befallen upon him of late and that is another subject for another day. The politics and economics of connections misallocate resources. The government housing projects make a perfect example. There were thousands of houses that were rebuilt because inexperienced tender-prenuers did a shoddy work at the expense of homeless masses. At the end of the day, the tax pay had to foot extra billions of rands for the same job. This calls for scrutiny of our BEE policies. Dark skin people dubbed in South Africa as “black” should understand BEE policies as an opportunity to demonstrate entrepreneurial flair as opposed to current mind-set of entitlement. This is not a reward for previously discriminated people. That being said, there are true black entrepreneurs and they deserve recognition. We can name Patrice Matsepe a black billionaire folk and the list go on etc. The corruption prevalent in government equally features in the private sector which is predominately whites. There are numerous scandals to name but a few, from management of pension funds Arthur Brown, estate mogul e scandal etc. The bottom line, government need a comprehensive strategy to deal with corruption both in government and the private sector. The private sector is not better off than government as newspapers owned by the private sector lead the society to believe. The top down approach which means the lead statesman should be an example. We need a statesman that is beyond reproach and scandal-less. All South Africans irrespective of background, race, and schooling should be allowed the opportunity to benefit from their hard work. Hence, fourth as the country we will miss the opportunity to transform this country if we don’t fix basic problem in education.

We need a positive change in thinking, ANC must ensure that now they deliver to the people and not to themselves and their families, its high time that they make people see the reason to vote for the ruling party again in 2014 and beyond even though is gonna be though for them,but it will now be the challenge for them to regain the trust that the majority of this country have lost through the corruption and self serving ANC Members, it is a high time that the ANC Leadership stops blaming the NP Led Gorverment and start going back to the drawing board and ensure that the South African Citizens enjoys the second Fruits of Democracy (since Corrupt Leaders of the ANC including Malema) enjoyed the first Fruits of the Democracy that our Comrades suffered for, like i said yersteday, the Leadership of the ANC should also consider high Positions for the Ordinary qualified Citizens who can deliver to the people and not those who are ANC/SACP comrades, wish you a merry Chistmas and a Successful 2013 ANC!!!

Makhura they made you a poster boy for this and you agreed, what a shamefull thing they are doing to you cmrade they are seting you up for a failure. This thing will not fly unless ZUMA dies because you know that it must start with him... I do not mean to be respectfull but I think we should not set up toothless committe like that joke of a Political School run by "Merc" Yengeni. Lets face it if we implement this correctlty we must start by issuing amnesties to all comrades or the organisation wil be left with no cader!!!!

No one on this planet earth will ever stop the "WHEEL OF CHANGE", not even the cruelty of the Boers could stop that. Good example is America, during the 60's no white ever dreamed that a black man would be president in their life time including us, we never saw that coming beside Martin Luther and other few..
Parties will come and go and the whole world is divided into 2 types of groups, those with short-vision and those with long-vision. People don't vote for the history of the name, wise people vote for who's behind the current name and what's the new offer on table. Not even Jesus could stop the wheel of change, even so wished, he came then gone.Political leaders are human they will come and go and new brainy leader will emerge. FREEDOM IS FOR ALL IRRESPECTIVE OF THE PARTY OF MY CHOICE..
