Samwu wants Secrecy Bill scrapped
16 September 2011
Municipal union Samwu is worried that the Protection of Information Bill will disadvantage whistle blowers and workers who are fighting corruption.
The bill is set to go before Parliament before being sent to President Jacob Zuma to be signed into law.
Samwu says it has long been fighting corruption at municipal level, and many of its leaders have been run down, victimised and even physically attacked.
The union wants the so-called Secrecy Bill to be blocked in the interest of enhancing service delivery.
