Pledging to fight it... Minister Dlamini signing a pledge to recommit to the fight against fraud and corruption in the social grant system.
The 2nd Anti-Fraud and Corruption Conference lived up to its expectations when delegates and other key stakeholders gathered at St George’s Hotel in Centurion a fortnight ago and recommitted themselves to fighting fraud and corruption in the social grant system.
The conference which was held under the theme “Ensuring human rights for all through a fraud free social grants system” saw more than 1000 delegates mainly from SASSA regions taking part.
Addressing delegates at the conference, Social Development Minister Ms Bathabile Dlamini boldly declared that the fight against corruption was being won.
“We are winning the fight and we will continue to learn and improve our systems to ensure that we are not only reactive, but also a step ahead of criminals who want to feed of the poor,” she said.
