Clinton Odayar, a tenacious K9 Search and Rescue police dog handler from the Umhlali K9 Unit in KwaZulu-Natal, is one of five public service employees who have recently been honoured at the Integrity Idols awards ceremony that was hosted in Johannesburg on 10 October 2019. The process of “naming and faming” these idols had started a year earlier and culminated in the event as Accountability Lab South Africa celebrated the journey of these five idols. Hosted at the historic Constitution Hill, the festivities were preceded by an integrity summit in which a panel led by South Africa Country Director Dadisai Taderera discussed integrity and accountability in government, business and society.

Each of the winning icons was honoured with a special award recognising their particular brand of integrity at the awards ceremony. The five icons and the awards are:

  • Moshalagae Malatji - Integrity with Perseverance

Moshalagae is head of the Limpopo province’s Library and Information Services division, working tirelessly to stock schoolchildren’s libraries and improve literacy in a resource-poor region.

  • Gugu Mlotshwa: Integrity with Resourcefulness

Gugu is a community health facilitator in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal. Her deep understanding of local government has resulted in her creating strong ties with other departments to help enable cohesive community healthcare services.

  • Helimamy Moeng: Integrity with Vision

Helimamy Moeng is the Manager of Pharmaceutical Services overseeing the distribution of essential medication in the South Western districts in the Western Cape. She’s long been motivated by widening access to critical drug treatments such as ARVs and ARTs.

  • Sakhile Nkosi: Integrity with Courage

Sakhile Nkosi is a young clinical audiologist at Lydenburg Hospital in Mpumalanga with a particular passion for nurturing community service student interns.

  • Clinton Odayar won the Integrity with Responsibility and the People's Choice Awards.

As noted earlier, Clinton is a dog handler in KwaZulu-Natal who has brought closure - together with his furry sidekick Dante - to hundreds of families who have lost loved ones.

One of the Integrity Idol winners from 2018, firefighter Jocelin Flank, told the icons that their “journeys of accountability” began that day. “This award is for life,” he said. “You have to uphold principles of integrity for life.”

Congratulations to all the winners - continue to be an inspiration to everyone who crosses your path in your professional and personal life.
