Residents are urged to report any suspicion of fraud, corruption or other irregular conduct to the Anti-fraud and Corruption Hotline on 080 TSHWANE (080 874 9263).
Report wrongful conduct such as credit control scams, biasness, sloppiness and unfairness during a tender process, city planning scams, illegal connections, land and property hijackings, unlawful amendments to customer information, transfer of properties using falsified clearance certificates, or the soliciting of bribes to process applications at licencing centres and the unlawful conduct of Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) officers.
The Anti-fraud and Corruption Hotline is operated from an off-site facility by an independent operator on behalf of the City. The hotline facility submits these cases to Group Audit and Risk where the cases are allocated reference numbers and assigned to forensic investigators.
Cases involving misconduct by the TMPD are transferred to the TMPD to be independently handled by the Internal Affairs Section.
All whistle-blowers using the hotline are afforded protection under the Protected Disclosures Act, 2000 (Act 26 of 2000) and Section 159 of the Companies Act, 2008 (Act 71 of 2008).

- The division and/or department in which the incident took place
- The nature of the incident
- The date and time of the incident
- How long has this been happening?
- How often does it happen?
- Names and number of people involved
