Minister Gordhan has shown himself as a fearless talker but also a doer. Perhaps his colleagues in the ministries of the Public Service, Cooperative Governance and others must take a leaf out of his book. Lifestyle audits should become an integral part of the public service and for elected politicians. It is one of the best ways to stop the scourge of corruption in our country that is most harmful to those who cannot afford it: the poor.
