The government is trying its best to fight corruption, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday.

"From my understanding we are trying our best to deal with corruption. If I look around in the world, I think there are very few countries that talk about corruption. It is not as if corruption is not there. We are reported more about because we are talking about it," Zuma told a The New Age breakfast.

"Yesterday [Thursday] I indicated the progress we have made [in fighting corruption]. We are even discussing the tender system, whether don't we need to change it in order to restrict the possibilities of corruption?"

Zuma said there was also corruption in the private sector, which was not often talked about.

Zuma said South African society had been called to join the government in the fight against corruption. Of the cases that were reported, "many of them are being attended to", he said.
