Johannesburg - Public servants should not expect bribes, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Friday.
“Public servants should not expect to be paid a bribe for executing the tasks that they are paid a salary for,” he told delegates at the National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) special congress in Benoni, on the East Rand.
He called on them to serve the country with pride and dignity at all times.
“We need to recognise that we wear a badge of honour to serve our people.”
Ramaphosa said a good public service was needed for government to effectively implement the National Development Plan.
“Workers in the public service should work hard and inspire young graduates to take up careers in the public service,” he said.
