New Anti-Corruption Unit Boss🗣: 'We Have Enough💰 Money'

  |   Sanews

The head of the new anti-corruption investigative directorate in the NPA says she has enough funding to do her job.

Advocate Hermione Cronje delivered the keynote address at the 2019 Nat Nakasa Awards ceremony of the South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) on Saturday.

She set the record straight about reports that the NPA was underfunded to properly fight state capture.

"We have enough money, from the state and private sector. The difficulty is to decide what to spend the money on."

Cronje said some of the frustrations she is experiencing in the NPA is the time it takes to make an appointment. "It's worse than I anticipated," said Cronje, who was a prosecutor before she left for the Cape Bar.

She lauded journalists for the role they played in exposing state capture and corruption. "You did all the work. My job is now to figure out how to take us there (to prosecutions)."
