Investigations into corruption drastically increased

Staff at the Special Investigating Unit is to be increased from 67 in 2001 to 550 by the end of this year in order to deal with the huge amount of corruption cases that have been unearthed. BuaNews reports that fraud cases in the social grant system alone are estimated to involve more than one-point-five billion rands. The Special Unit has so far recovered nearly nine million rands in actual funds lost to corruption in the first nine months of the current financial year. On the level of savings, however, it expects to have saved the state close to 200-million rands by the end of this month as a result of investigations into corruption.
