Webinar on the prosecution of corruption in municipalities with Adv. Barry Madolo

This Webinar discussion between Adv. Madolo and Prof. De Visser explores the successes and challenges in prosecuting corruption at this level of government. The Webinar was hosted by Africa Criminal Justice Reform and the Multilevel Government Project, both programmes of the Dullah Omar Institute.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) must prosecute corruption at all levels of government. While much of the focus has been on the capture of national government and national state-owned enterprises (SOEs), there has also been widespread corruption in municipalities. In a recent opinion-editorial, Advocate Barry Madolo, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in the Eastern Cape, has described some successes enjoyed by the NPA in prosecuting corruption in municipalities in the Eastern Cape. There is highly specific legislation relating to municipalities, and to municipal finances, such as the Municipal Finance Management Act, with which prosecutors must be familiar in order to successfully to prosecute offences relating to municipal finances. Professor Jaap de Visser of the Dullah Omar Institute is a leading expert in the field of multi-level government and municipal legislation. He recently co-authored a research paper on the combating of corruption in municipalities in the Western Cape, which also addresses the role of the NPA.
