Expose It uses reports of bribery and corruption collected on its website and ussd phone app to fight corruption on every level within public service organisations including; government departments, political parties and parastatals.

As a socially driven movement, Expose It relies on citizen reports: the more incidents are reported, the more hotspots are exposed for our legal team to know exactly where to take action.

The reporting process is simple, free and user friendly, making Expose It open and accessible to all members of the South African public on our mobile friendly website http://www.ExposeIt.org.za or even on old cell phones by dialing the free ussd number *134*1105#. Incidents of corruption can be safely and anonymously reported – from bribery, back-handed deals and bullying to abuse of power.

the more incidents are reported, the more hotspots are exposed for our legal team know exactly where to take action.

Unlike many other corruption organisations, Expose It’s legal team of experts is dedicated to taking legal action and act on hotspots exposed by public reports on our platform. Through JASA, we have the support of the Hawks, Crime Intelligence, the National Prosecuting Authority and Public Protector to help ensure cases are prosecuted whenever there is appropriate evidence.
