Meanwhile, Public Service and Administration Minister Ayanda Dlodlo announced this week that the government will introduce lifestyle audits for national and provincial employees as from 1 April 2022.
Dlodlo was delivering the keynote address at the Lifestyle Audit Indaba in Gauteng. Its theme was “Building an Ethical Public Service Through Lifestyle Audit.”
“Lifestyle audits will not only probe unexplained wealth, but they will also detect conflicts of interests that have an impact on the productivity of public service employees and on service delivery,” the Minister explained.
“Thus, although lifestyle audits are a mechanism or tool to address corruption, in its essence, it is aimed at restoring ethics to be at the centre of the public service.”
She added that although lifestyle audits are not a punitive measure, they will help to detect corruption or criminal conduct among public servants, who will then face consequences if found guilty.
“We cannot professionalise the public service, improve service delivery or have economic growth if we condone unethical conduct and ignore corrupt behaviour,” Dlodlo emphasised.
Lifestyle audits are among several measures President Cyril Ramaphosa’s administration is undertaking in its quest to build a capable and developmental state.
There are unconfirmed reports that Ministers have also been asked to hand over their passports as part of the audits.
