Corrupt self-enrichment ideology

2011-08-18 08:08

The persistence to indirectly condone the corrupt self-enrichment syndrome spreading within our leadership both in politics, government and the business arena has potential to steal our hard fought for freedom.

The calamity would be likened to what was witnessed in other African countries such as Algeria, Ethiopia, etc post-independence if educational non-corrupt ideology is not embedded in our society urgently.

Our society seems to be infiltrated with a view that suggests human superiority is informed and determined by millions of rand.

To a large degree, the patriotic citizenship concept does not exist within the majority of South Africans; hence those enriching themselves through corrupt mechanisms have no futuristic view of the state of the country in general.

Unfortunately in most instances, self-enrichment is done at the expense of the ordinary, innocent community.

Most people in different leadership view their positions as gateway authorising looting of government/corporate cash at all cost to a level that encourages destruction of any individual perceived to be stumbling block.

As much as there are huge corrupt activities within government, the same practices do exist in the private sector.

It would be germane to develop strategic project mechanisms to instil a corruption-free society, mostly among the young generation on an ongoing basis.

Hopefully, the views of patriotic people such as Advocate Thuli Madonsela may inspire most of the generation to denounce corrupt activities in action.

We likely to witness 80% of the wealth belonging to 15-20% of the population, while 80% of the population would be sharing 20% of wealth within the next few decades unless we all make it our business to protect our country.
