The Department of Local Government supports municipalities with the implementation of anti-corruption strategies. To date we have supported 24 municipalities with awareness training, reaching 200 councillors.
Support was rendered to district municipalities with anti-corruption training to 85 councillors and officials.
Assistance has been provided to 11 municipalities in drafting a Fraud Prevention Plan and establishment of Anti-Corruption Committees with the assistance of the donor, Hanns Seidell Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU).
The department envisions supporting an additional 10 municipalities with the establishment of Anti-Corruption Committees. Online training is also being planned for municipalities in the Western Cape.
