Corruption Rife in Local Councils – Idasa Survey

According to the Institute for Democracy in South Africa survey, rural South Africans think their councillors are corrupt, ineffective and unresponsive

According to the Institute for Democracy in South Africa (Idasa) survey, rural South Africans think their councillors are corrupt, ineffective and unresponsive.
 
The survey found that about 70 percent of people polled in rural areas of four provinces said councillors are not doing a good job and municipalities did not provide a good service.
 
Released just six weeks before the next local government election on 18 May 2011, the survey also found that though  the government consistently claims the provision of safe water as its greatest success, more than half of those questioned say it remains their biggest challenge and barely one in five said water services had improved after the past year.
