CAPE TOWN - President Cyril Ramaphosa will be making his ministers sign performance agreements that will be made public.
Ramaphosa says the measure is to strengthen the capacity of the state and increase accountability.
The president announced that he will be signing the agreements with the ministers before the end of this month.
"These agreements – which are based on the targets contained in the Medium-Term Strategic Framework – will be made public so that the people of South Africa can hold those who they elected into office to account," Ramaphosa said.
"We see these performance agreements as the cornerstone of a new culture of transparency and accountability, where those who are given the responsibility to serve – whether as elected office bearers or public servants – do what is expected of them.
"It is a culture where corruption, nepotism and patronage are not tolerated, and action is taken against those who abuse their power or steal public money."
