A special tribunal is to be set up in South Africa with powers to fast-track prosecutions and recover the proceeds of corruption.
President Cyril Ramaphosa said the tribunal would consider cases brought by the Special Investigating Unit.
After 25 years in power, the African National Congress has become tainted by widespread allegations of corruption, which forced out Mr Ramaphosa’s predecessor, Jacob Zuma, last year.
South Africa faces elections on 8 May.
Mr Ramaphosa’s announcement of the eight-member panel comes a day after the largest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, said it would place the fight against corruption at the heart of its election campaign.
“I want to say to all the politicians, if you are corrupt, you can expect to spend 15 years in jail,” said DA leader Mmusi Maimane at the launch of its manifesto.
Mr Ramaphosa has vowed to tackle corruption since coming to power.
In his State of the Nation Address earlier this month, he announced the creation of a special investigating team to deal with serious corruption and associated offences within the National Prosecution Authority.
