The African National Congress Women's League has noted with disappointment the reports on the National Treasury's failure to adhere to principles of supply chain management in the implementation of the Integrated Financial Management (IFMS) project.
National Treasury has to be custodian of good governance which manages government's financial assets and liabilities soundly in a transparent and effective financial management. However it kept reports on IFMS as a secret until African News Network 7 (ANN7) channel exposed the shenanigans in this project which costed the tax payers over R1bn. Fraud and corruption in public and private sector must be exposed and criminal charges must be opened with law enforcement agencies alleged perpetrators to be prosecuted. The ANCWL calls for parliament to urgently institute Ad Hoc Committee on the IFMS project. All money paid unduly to any service providers in this project must be recovered and for the law to take its course.
The ANCWL reiterates its stance on the need for the full scale judicial commission of inquiry on state capture to investigate any forms of fraud and corruption in government departments and state owned companies. The ANCWL is against any individuals, organisations and family businesses who have captured and or attempts to capture any organ of our State. State capture must be investigated comprehensively and those found guilty of any wrong doing must face full wrath of the law.
ANCWL calls for the State President His Excellency Jacob Zuma to appoint a Judicial Commission of Inquiry on State Capture. The sooner this Commission is established the better as this will separate facts from opinions on the State Capture.
