This article, dealing with corruption during the first decade of democracy in South Africa (1994-2004), will focus on the presence of corruption in central government as pertaining to the abuse of either an office or position of authority, resulting in improper enrichment to oneself and for others. Corruption is derived from the Latin word "corruptus", which means corrupt, involving images of evil. Corruption has been and is still prevalent in the public sector of South Africa.
