Cllr Mzwandile Masina
The City of Ekurhuleni strives to be a metro whose leadership is unquestionably committed to high ethical standards, service delivery and good governance. We commit to serve our communities and all stakeholders with respect, dignity and integrity, and in a manner that is consitent with the values and principles we uphold.
Corruption breaks down societal norms, erodes good gorvernance and obstructs service delivery. We have therefore taken a zero tolerance approach to fraud and corruption and commit to reducing the City’s susceptibility to fraud,
raising awareness amongst employees and stakeholders and provide rules on what conduct and behaviour is acceptable. Our goal is to foster and maintain a culture of honesty and integrity, a key requirement in fulfilling our regulatory mandate.
I therefore encourage councillors, political office bearers and all members of staff and the public to raise concerns at the earliest possible stage about any form of corruption and maladministration. Perpetrators will be dealt with and incidents will be reported to SAPS for prosecution.
LET US STAND UP AND FIGHT AGAINST FRAUD AND CORRUPTION!
