Unite Against Corruption Campaign - Letter to Minister Jeff Radebe

DIRECTOR-GENERAL: PRESIDENCY
Attention: Dr Cassius Reginald Lubisi
C/O Nokhukhanya Kubheka
Union Buildings, East Wing
Government Avenue
PRETORIA
0001
1st December
Urgent Message for the Attention of Minister Radebe.
Dear Minister Radebe,
Re : Response to Memorandum Submitted by the United Against Corruption Campaign
We are writing to you on behalf of the United Against Corruption campaign who presented you with a memorandum on September 30th outside Union Buildings where you kindly agreed to accept it on behalf of the Government.
We deliberately provided two months for the response to the memorandum to be developed because we understand that these matters require careful but urgent consideration, and especially so given the revelations on a daily basis that are emerging of the misuse of government funds. The latest report from the Auditor General is a case in point, and has served as a timely reminder of the need for decisive action.
The 30th of November was the date that we expected a response, and we are writing to you now to inquire as to whether a response from you is forthcoming.  You will be aware that Wednesday 9th of December is International Anti-Corruption Day, and we are holding an activity on that day to draw attention to the need to tackle corruption at all levels. It would be ideal to report on the 9th December that we have indeed received a response from Government. If a response by that date is not forthcoming then we will be left with no alternative but to advertise this fact via the media, and through the network of 200 plus organisations and countless individuals who have subscribed to the campaign to date.  
We look forward to hearing from you. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to make contact.
Yours sincerely,
Thuli Ngubane
