Corruption-The Postmortem

07 November 2011, 20:39

A couple of weeks back President Jacob Zuma fired two ministers and suspended the national police commissioner. In his announcement, Zuma said he has suspended the national police commissioner, Bheki Cele with immediate effect and also sacked the Cooperative Governance Minister, Sicelo Shiceka, and the Public Works Minister, Gwen Mahlangu Nkabinde.

But what fuels such greed to the point where individuals are so oblivious of their fraudulent actions?

What can be more appalling than In Laws? A Justin Bieber fan or the thought of nationalization, Or Whoopi Goldberg in a bathing suit, perhaps Adolf Hitler being reincarnated back to Earth as a Jew…

Ladies and Gentle, in comparison to Politicians, you are better off with your In Laws.

South Africa has become a banana republic with the several Baboons we have in parliament. We make Zimbabwe seem like a Utopia coated in chocolate and candy, a place governed by a peaceful, democratic character with a really nice moustache, which has been in power since the Jurassic period- in fact before the first dinosaur took its first crap.

So what drives such fraudulent behaviour? In my postmortem of the political body, I concluded my observation with the following findings.

The political body functions primarily on an organ scientifically known as greed which is situated adjacent to another organ known as stupidity. These two organs seem to be the nucleus of the political body, without the following the body would malfunction. Forcing the body to succumb to its bureaucratic duties, this is considered to be a taboo in the political realm. Misuse of public funds has become a common normality amongst politicians, to the point where fraud is one of the perks of the position.

Cooperative Governance Minister, Sicelo Shiceka you have a collect call from a Swiss jail, do you accept? Yes Operator…in fact book me first-class air travel tickets, I plan to visit my Girlfriend in prison. How will you be paying MR Shiceka? What do you mean how will “I” pay; we have tax payers for that… what country are you from operator! Stop being counter revolutionary.

Although the Shower head dude took necessary steps by firing corrupt officials in question, I firmly believe that the decision was taken due to the mounting pressure from the public. Has corruption reached a cul-de-sac? Highly unlikely… where there is a will there is a way.
