Vote for those who will actually end corruption
28 September 2021
Accountability Now, an NGO dedicated to exacting accountability and upholding the constitution in South Africa, is calling on voters to focus on the issue of corruption, when making their mark at the voting stations on 1 November 2021.
“The notion of accountability, which is foundational to our constitutional order, has not been given sufficient attention in the new South Africa - those in positions of authority and power should be made to explain their decisions and justify their actions to the people they serve,” says Paul Hoffman SC, director of Accountability Now.
Hoffman believes that the voters in the upcoming local government elections can make accountability really matter: “Voters have it in their power to insist that the party of their choice should have a clear idea of what it intends to do, as a matter of urgency, to eliminate corruption, prosecute the corrupt and rake back the trillions that have been stolen from our coffers.”
