    “The Year of Nelson Mandela: Building a Better Africa and a Better World”. The African Union theme “Winning the fight against Corruption. A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation.
  2. HON. Members, the AU Assembly has declared 11th July as the African Anti-corruption Day. To attain all 17 Sustainable Development goals by 2030 and have a corruption free country, South African’s have to be vigilant and report corruption without fear. For this we need a government policy or a system that is transparent.

  6. With this, The Minority Front congratulates the HON.MEC of Safety and Security Mr Bheki Cele on the apprehension of those involved in the cash in transit heists.

Thank you
