ActionSA welcomes the suspension of Cape Town Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Malusi Booi, following the recent raid by SAPS’s Commercial Crimes Unit in the offices of the City, as part of the police’s investigation into fraud and corruption.
We commend the Commercial Crimes Unit for acting swiftly to root out fraud and corruption, which has become a cancer in government institutions. It is only through effective consequence management that our government will successfully win the war against corruption in our municipalities.
This is a step in the right direction in restoring the trust of ordinary South Africans in our institutions of governance and the Rule of Law.
ActionSA will be tracking developments in this matter to ensure full accountability should any misconduct be confirmed.
