Most young South Africans believe corruption in government is getting worse, a survey revealed on Wednesday.

Sixty-nine percent of the youth surveyed believed there was currently more corruption in government than a year ago, consumer insights company Pondering Panda said.

They also supported the Democratic Alliance's call for naming and shaming of corrupt politicians.

Eighteen percent believed it was at the same level, and eight percent that there was less corruption.

A total of 4197 respondents, aged between 18 and 34, were interviewed for the survey.

"It's clear that young people see government as stuck in a spiral of corruption and would welcome any measure that helps stop it," spokeswoman Shirley Wakefield said.

"As our other surveys have shown, young people feel corruption affects them directly, because it diverts money into the pockets of corrupt politicians and officials -- money which could otherwise be used to improve education, infrastructure, and create job opportunities."

Fifty-eight percent of respondents believed there would be less corruption if those found guilty were named, while 38 percent thought this would have no effect.

The remainder of respondents were unsure about the impact it would have.

"Young South Africans support the naming and shaming of corrupt politicians, but the fact that almost two in five think it won't change anything shows that there is a significant lack of faith in the government," said Wakefield.

The help vote the useless cretins out. No point in complaining if you a) abstain from voting or b) continue to vote because of what they done 20-years ago.

Corruption is hardly acted on i feel. Most of these reports of findings and whatever else is just a smokescreen. Give the "guilty" ones a year or two and they are out of jail and ready to do the same again...

...

And the remaining 5% denied any involvement in corruption and was offended for even being approached regarding the matter. Their results have been excluded from this survey. :D

I remember another study concluding that corruption is just as bad in the private sector...:(
