Lifestyle audits should be introduced to clear the air- Naledi Pandor

Member of the African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) and Science and Technology Minister says government should start implementing lifestyle audits to identify public servants involved in corruption.

Pandor says there is a perception that "all of us who are political leaders or hold public office are corrupt".

To clear the air, we must act on this.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister

Information should be utilised in order to establish whether one is living beyond means.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister

Speaking to Talk At Nine host, Karima Brown, Pandor also condemned infighting amongst ANC members saying they should address each other within the party.

It's more themselves that they diminish than the individuals they are meant to.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister

You must conduct yourself professionally and have the good interest of the organisation at the core of what you do. And, you should remember we are elected to represent the people and to serve them. We are not there to fight with each other. Once you dissent to fight, I believe you have forgotten what your obligation is.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister
