LEKUBU, BK  and  SIBANDA, Omphemetse S.. Moral Values and Ethics as Antidotes for Corruption in the South African Public Service and Administration. Koers (Online) [online]. 2021, vol.86, n.1, pp.1-12. ISSN 2304-8557.

This paper examines the relationship between morals, ethics, public administration and corruption. The argument advanced is that morals and ethics are antidotes for bureaucratic corruption in public service and administration. Currently there seems to be low ethics and morality in public service and administration in South Africa. The discussions in this paper consider the obligations under the South African National Development plan 2030, African Union Convention on Preventing and Combating Corruption, the African Charter on Values and Principles of Public Service and Administration, and the African Charter on the Values and Principles of Decentralization, Local Governance and Local Development for a corruption free and ethical public service and administration.

Keywords : African Union; Corruption; Ethics; Morals; Leadership; Public Administration; Public Agents; Public Services; Public Interest.
