Will SA everbe free from corruption?

2017-04-18 06:00

SOUTH African politicians’ extravaganza and plundering of public wealth is no secret.

From time to time, such news appears in the media, but these corrupt leaders continue their pillage.

They are a law unto themselves. They abuse their power and eliminate people who speak against them.

President Jacob Zuma is 100% accountable for all public spending. It is his legal duty to ensure that the taxpayers’ money is spent on improving the lives of all South African citizens.

Our government’s failure to adhere to the practices of good governance means that stakeholders are increasingly demanding accountability.

Mass action and strikes are being organised in protest as citizens begin to lose faith in the ability or willingness of their elected officials.

Will South Africa ever be free from political corruption?
