"The thematic focus of the Transformation Audit this year enables us to present, in addition to our regular research updates, some studies relevant to that concern of many South Africans: enrichment and official malpractice. This covers a spectrum ranging from legal corruption, inertia and neglect through to mismanagement, self-enrichment and criminal corruption on the part of officials. This year, we also provide an indicative list of the ‘new establishment’, identifying some of the networks of social capital associated with political, struggle and business elites."
