Recent Gauteng Business News

Commenting on the announcement Keith Sendwe, CEO of CIPRO said that while fraud and corruption was unfortunately one of the hard realities confronting business owners the world over on a daily basis it could no longer go unchecked in South Africa. CIPRO has vowed to lead the stand against fraud and corruption.In what he referred to as his “clarion call to South African businesses” Sendwe said that now was the time to take the fight against fraud and corruption to a whole new level. “It is imperative that everyone realises that the onus to fight corruption rests on the shoulders of each and every individual, and in each and every company. We live in a country where we all have to take hands to eradicate poverty and establish a healthy, competitive economic environment. Those that are involved in fraud and corruption, literally steal a better life away from their fellow human beings.”“We have started within our own organisation by taking tangible steps to ensure a corruption-free environment and are at present, amongst other things, working actively to validate the integrity of our data. This includes verifying the legitimacy of all registered entities within CIPRO. Leading by example it is our intention to take our message of sound corporate governance to each and every registered entity within South Africa,” said Sendwe. As part of CIPRO’s anti fraud and corruption campaign Sendwe called on all South African business owners to throw their weight behind its stance against corruption. “If every business owner takes the responsibility upon themselves to ensure that they appoint accounting officers and auditors that are both legitimate and trustworthy, we will make huge strides in establishing a corruption-free environment.”He added that corruption is not just the obvious act of meddling with figures, but it starts with every employee that makes an ill-considered decision to his or her own benefit and to the detriment of the company or organisation that they represent. “Think of the consequences of your actions. Even if you perform the most insignificant act of corruption, the ripple effect can mean that you create considerable harm to businesses and many thousands of honest, hard-working South Africans. You can make a difference and help create a better life for all South Africans,” says Mr Sendwe.

In 2008 CIPRO added more than 260 000 new South African organisation entities to their database and they hope to improve this significant quantity in 2009. “CIPRO is every South African’s gateway to formal economic participation, but in order to achieve that we call on every South African’s integrity and co-operation in fighting corruption.” Assist CIPRO in rooting out fraud and corruption in 2009 by supplying them with all the necessary information on your organisation and by informing them of all changes. This will ensure that CIPRO can inform you timeously of any changes that may have an effect on your organisation. With active participation you will not only improve your own organisation, but you will also help to create work opportunities and thus ensure a better future for all South Africans.
