Combatting bribery – Learn how to be corruption free

The global fight against corruption has intensified significantly over the past 25 years. One need only look at the history of corruption to gain an understanding of the contagion we face and the measures that have been, and continue to be, introduced in an attempt to combat corruption.

South Arica is a prime example of the damage that corruption does to an economy. Billions of rand designed to provide services to the poor, create employment, improve healthcare and education has been embezzled through different means of corruption.

There are two opposing views as to whether these measures have actually had any impact on corruption and/or money laundering. There are also still many people who see no wrong or harm in corrupt activities.

As an exercise in human behaviour, raise the question of paying bribes to government and/or traffic officials at your next dinner party or braai and gauge the response.
