Corruption Watch released it's annual report stating it received 4391 reports of corruption.
David Lewis, Executive director of Corruption Watch, chats to Redi Tlhabi about the latest report.
The organisation has been running for five years and Lewis believes increasingly people are standing up against corruption.
It's reflected in our increasing volume of reports but also reflected in the popular outrage and popular demands to end corruption which has become very common place which is great.— David Lewis, Executive director of Corruption Watch
One of the stand out issues that has come to the organisation's attention this year is corruption in schools.
Corruption hot spots are spread throughout the country he says.
The organisation wants to increase its footprint in the non-metropolitan areas.
Whistle-blower protection remains a key concern and Lewis says they are making ground with regards to legislation and statutory protection.
He says Corruption Watch is also well versed in protecting those who come forward.
It's never going to be easy, standing up against something that is wrong when powerful people think it is just fine is never an easy task...and we salute that courage.— David Lewis, Executive director of Corruption Watch
