In 2006 the South African Minister of Intelligence established the Ministerial Review Commission on Intelligence in order to strengthen controls of the civilian intelligence organisations, ensure alignment with the Constitution and prevent illegality and abuse of power. At the end of 2008 the commission released its report. This article sets out an agenda for intelligence reform in South Africa by presenting the commission's findings and proposals regarding adherence to the Constitution, the White Paper on Intelligence, ministerial control and responsibility, the domestic intelligence mandate, intrusive measures, and transparency.
