Amnesty International South Africa applauded the government’s decision to create a national anti-corruption charter

Jan 10, 2022

By Hajira Khota

Amnesty International South Africa has urged President Cyril Ramaphosa to put the recommendations in part one of the state capture report into action.

Part one of the report was delivered to the president on Tuesday amid great fanfare and controversy, including an urgent court move to prevent the transfer.

Corruption stifles democracy and infringes on fundamental human rights. “In South Africa, mismanagement of public funds has hampered access to fundamental services,” said Shenilla Mohamed, Executive Director of Amnesty International South Africa who spoke to Radio Islam International.

Zondo’s critical findings in the report included the assertion that South Africa’s government could not be trusted with the ultimate responsibility of leading the fight against corruption.

Amnesty International South Africa applauded the government’s decision to enact a national charter against corruption and establish an anti-corruption agency free of political scrutiny.

Whistleblowers are essential to any democracy because they put their lives and livelihoods on the line to inform society when something is wrong.

Without whistleblowers, Mohamed believes that proof of large-scale human rights breaches would never come to light.
