In his weekly letter, the president noted that he will punish the public servants who irregularly benefited from social subsidies intended to alleviate the impact of Covid-19 among the least developed population.

The revelation in Parliament that thousands of public servants have been receiving social subsidies illegally every month shows that we still have a long way to go to instill a culture of ethics, Ramaphosa wrote on the Presidency’s Twitter account.

Recently, the Parliament learned that more than 16,000 government employees submitted applications to collect the monthly subsidy of 350 rand (about 23 dollars).

In the letter, Ramaphosa revealed that a new Unit on Ethics, Integrity and Disciplinary Technical Assistance to Public Administration has been created to institute disciplinary proceedings in cases of misconduct.
