City investigates fraud and corruption without fear or favour
​seasonHead of the City Integrity and Investigations Unit,
Mbuso Ngcobo speaking at the Fraud and Corruption
Awareness Seminar.
IDENTIFIED elements that are suspected or reported to be corrupt have to be investigated without fear or favour, and if found must be eliminated from eThekwini Municipality.

This was the stern warning by Mbuso Ngcobo, Head of the City’s Integrity and Investigations Unit who was speaking at the Fraud and Corruption Awareness Seminar on 21 November at the Durban Exhibition Centre.“

EThekwini Municipality is not a corrupt organisation. That should be clear. If there is fraud and corruption being identified in the Municipality, it is just those elements or individuals caught who are probably corrupt, not eThekwini Municipality as an organisation,” he said.The seminar was hosted by eThekwini Municipality in partnership with the Association for Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) to observe International Fraud Awareness Week which is commemorated between 17 and 23 November.

The awareness week is aimed at creating a platforms for engagement on issues of fraud and corruption, encouraging pertinent role players to elevate good governance. Ngcobo called on everyone to support efforts to eradicate fraud and corruption, to lead by example and encourage corrective actions against corrupt behaviours. “Fighting fraud and corruption is everyone’s business. Let us work together to fight, eradicate it and make a better South Africa,” he said.

He also called for the protection of whistle-blowers as critical stakeholders to fight corruption and fraud.“We also have to think and make decisions about practical mechanisms that can be employed to protect the whistle blowers. They are the critical stakeholders in the fight against fraud and corruption, but yet they are very vulnerable,” he said.In addition, he emphasised that the Municipality has zero tolerance towards fraud and corruption and said this is boldly documented on Council policy document.
