'Endemic' corruption in South Africa is at its 'tip'

Johannesburg , Wed, 04 Apr 2012 ANI

Johannesburg, Apr 4(ANI): South Africa's Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has said endemic corruption in the country is at its peak.

Speaking at the Winelands Conference, she said: "If corruption were not decisively dealt with, it had the potential to distort the economy and derail democracy."

"We are at a tipping point and (former president Nelson Mandela's) warning that 'our hope for the future depends also on our resolution as a nation in dealing with the scourge of corruption' remains valid," Sports24 quoted Madonsela, as saying.

"If we don't deal with corruption decisively it will not only impact on good governance, but has the potential to distort our economy and to derail democracy," she added.

Madonsela said South Africa needed selfless leadership and an end to impunity in its battle against misadministration and corruption.nti-corruption and anti-misadministration efforts would be useless while South Africa had "protected people" or 'holy cows', she said. (ANI)
