Conflict of interest

A fundamental rule for maintaining civil service integrity is to avoid conflict of interest situations. Under no circumstances should a civil servant:

(a) use his official position to benefit himself, his family, relatives or friends or any person to whom he owes a favour or is obligated in any way; or
(b) put himself in a position that may reasonably arouse suspicion of dishonesty, or of using his official position to benefit himself or his family, relatives or friends.

There are clear guidelines which require each and every civil servant to be vigilant at all times against any real or apparent conflict of interest situation. He must report to his superior immediately as and when any such situation comes to light.
