Eastern Cape Premier Noxolo Kiviet has announced that public servants will no longer be allowed to trade with the government.
The decision was taken at a provincial lekgotla in East London.
Kiviet says the practice opens government to corrupt tendencies.
The lekgotla also welcomed the provincial executive council's allocation of about R56 million to employ maths and science teachers.
Kiviet says this will create stability and improve education in the province.
