The George Municipality is starting a series on FRAUD on their Social media pages. We will be following it and report it on LoveGeorgeNEWS.
FRAUD ALERT: Introduction to our upcoming series of fraud alerts and facts
George Municipality is committed to develop and foster a climate where all employees and councillors strive for the ultimate eradication of fraud, corruption, theft and maladministration.
Criminal and other irregular conduct within George Municipality is detrimental to good, effective, accountable and transparent governance and can endanger the economic stability of the municipality and have the potential to cause social damage.
George Municipality is launching a series of fraud alerts and fraud strategies to all employees, councillors and the public. Look out for our upcoming Fraud Facts, Ethics Questionnaires, Training and Educational Campaigns.
