Call for Transparency Over Party Funding

A toxic blend of secret money and political influence is creating a ceremonial undermining of South Africa’s democracy, argues February

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) says that a toxic blend of secret money and political influence is creating a ceremonial undermining of South Africa’s democracy.

ISS senior researcher, Judith February, argues that there is no way of know when the corporate and private world are investing in political parties for favours because the country does not regulate private funding of political parties. 

She is of the view that, “We have no way of knowing when private or corporate interests try to buy political favours in South Africa,” further stating the need for a legislation to enable transparency and prevent the potentially corrupting influence of secret money on politics and government.”
