Premier Makhura: Make all SIU reports public tomorrow

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng is calling on Premier David Makhura to make the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) reports public tomorrow.

There are a number of SIU reports that Premier Makhura has promised to make public, but to date, we are still waiting.

Tomorrow would be the ideal time for these reports to be released, as Premier Makhura will be releasing the Gauteng Province’s State of Integrity and Anti-Corruption report.

A reply to the DA’s questions tabled last year regarding the SIU reports indicated that the Premier would make a consolidated report available by June 2021, while at a committee meeting, he said that this will happen at the end of the year.

However, the individual reports would not be made public, which covers all alleged corruption that may have taken place since March 2014.

If Premier Makhura is serious about running a government that is honest and accountable to the electorate he will release the consolidated report along with all the individual completed immediately.

By releasing all the SIU reports consequence management can take place and all officials and politicians implicated can be held to account.
