Anti-corruption agencies established by government initiatives require greater coordination across all governing spheres if the fight against graft is to be successful, said National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions Willie Hofmeyr.
He was speaking at the Public Sector Forum hosted by the Institute of Internal Auditors of South Africa on Tuesday 20 February 2012. Hofmeyr argued that there was not enough coherence between the various government agencies to effectively take on the ambitious mandate set by the Executive, which aims to convict 100 corrupt officials by 2014.
He said that, despite the groundwork being laid to fight corruption – such as the establishment of investigating units such as the Hawks, the anti-corruption task team and the multi-agency working group on procurement located within the finance cluster – there was a lack of coordination and partnership between these groups. This was particularly prevalent on government levels, with local government initiatives being the most ineffective.
