In an effort to expose local government level corruption, civil rights group AfriForum’s Advocate Gerrie Nel on Tuesday presented a ‘crush corruption’ workshop in Port Elizabeth.

Nel, who made headlines when he headed the prosecution during the murder trial of Paralympian Oscar Pistorious, was appointed by AfriForum to run its private prosecuting unit.

The unit recently announced that it was preparing to privately prosecute Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema for fraud and tender corruption if the Hawks did not proceed with the case.

At the workshop, Nel explained what corruption entailed and how it could be denounced.

He also emphasised the importance of good investigative work, normal and expert witnesses, thorough documentary proof, whistle-blower cultivation and protection and the use of technology to investigate and expose corruption.     

He was accompanied by AfriForum legal advisor for local corruption Wico Swanepoel.

The chairperson of the AfriForum branch in Port Elizabeth said corruption was a serious problem for South Africans and that everyone had the obligation to expose corrupt behavior.
