eMALAHLENI ANTI-CORRUPTION HOTLINE: 013 690 6469
Since February 2001 South Africa has had the most far-reaching "state of the art" whistle-blowing legislation in the world. Understood and applied effectively, the new legislation known as the Protected Disclosures Act no 26 of 2000 will help to deter and detect wrongdoing in the hworkplace, acting as an early-warning mechanism to prevent impropriety and corruption within the public sector.
Understood correctly, whistle-blowing is not about informing in the negative, anonymous sense but rather about “raising a concern about malpractice within an organization”. The bravery of being prepared to blow the whistle is directly related to the cultural resistance in many organizations to transparency and accountability.
Whistle-blowing is therefore a key tool for promoting individual responsibility and organizational accountability. “Whistle-blowers act in good faith and in the public interest to raise concerns around suspected impropriety within their place of employment”. However, they often risk victimization, recrimination and sometimes dismissals.
The eMalahleni Local Municipality has established an Anti Corruption Hotline, which will be free in the future it is operational during working hours, however we are in the process of opening it for 24hours in due course.
The Number is: 013 690 6469.
