THE SA Communist Party says its community activism and the fight against corruption has resulted in its membership growing.

Speaking during a political bureau meeting of the SACP held in Johannesburg yesterday, spokesperson Malesela Maleka said the party had 105000 registered members, making it the second largest political party in the country.

"The SACP's unity and membership continues to grow significantly. Our membership growth is directly linked to our community-based activism and a range of campaigns spearheaded by the party."

Maleka said the party's campaign against corruption had struck a powerful chord among a large number of South Africans.

"Together with a wide range of forces we will intensify this campaign in the coming months by focusing on the blockages to service delivery to poor communities.

"Many of these blockages are directly related to tenderpreneurship and other corrupting practices."
