Immoral, unethical conduct of politicians and public officials is a global scourge of the present day. The South African government is leading the battle against corruption in the public sector, and it must be supported by officials educated to recognise, and enabled to combat, every appearance of this pestilence. Ethics and professionalism is essential equipment for such education. Having been constructed on the principles of knowledge progression and outcomes based education, it sets out explaining the meaning of ethics and its importance for public officials. It then examines secular and religious moral values before addressing the phenomenon of corruption. Equipped with knowledge of the latter, the reader may then progress to strategies to counter corruption, studying bills of human rights and ethical codes of conduct. Aiming at the outcome of professional public managers with integrity, the title next inspects various public service models before discussing the need for professionalising the vocation of public management. A brief investigation of how corruption is being fought worldwide and in South Africa concludes the work.
