CampaignsOne of the roles of a civil rights organisation is to address issues that may have a negative impact on society. Some of the most important campaigns that AfriForum undertakes are aimed against hate speech, farm murders and corruption.
AfriForum’s anti-corruption unit was necessitated by the fact that corruptions erupted like a cancer during the Zuma government and brought the country to its knees. Although Zuma is no longer President and an investigation into corruption has since been launched, it remains an open question if all guilty parties would be brought to book.
“I believe in the rule of law. AfriForum’s private prosecuting unit gives me the opportunity to help ensure that justice prevails, no matter the position of the person who committed corruption. AfriForum and I are now able to prosecute people who are not being prosecuted by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) ourselves.” – Adv. Gerrie Nel.
