The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, in conjunction with Public Service and Administration, recently held the first historic MinMEC in Pretoria to discuss the state of local government and actions that can be put to use to curtail corruption by officials in the provinces and municipalities. The minister of cooperative governance and traditional affairs, Sicelo Shiceka, with his Public Service and Administration counterpart, Richard Baloyi, declared war against corruption and promised to introduce a governance system that would help to act against officials who abuse power, irrespective of their political affiliation. "We want to establish a value system of governance in this country that all political parties must live up to so that nobody uses a party ticket to per form illegal acts," Shiceka said.
