Tender Corruption

2012-07-22 15:09

This is an extract of Pravin Gordhan’s budget speech:

Significant progress is being made in identifying and dealing with those who have

abused the system and whose activities fall within the category of priority crimes. The

JCPS made an announcement on priority crimes and corruption statistics earlier this

week. I want to thank Ministers Mthetwa and Radebe for the cooperation of

departments and agencies under their control. Our joint multi-disciplinary approach to

investigations is bearing fruit”.

Now, have I been missing something or have any of you heard of any progress being made getting this evil practice under control? Have any of you heard about a single soul being investigated or being brought to book about their tender corruption?

Isn’t this just so typical of Gordhan and the whole ANC.  He thanks Minister Mthetwa, who is himself being investigated for stealing from the Police slush fund?

We are actually stupid. All of us DA voters. We should get ourselves a black man to front for Mrs. Zille, promise our very enlightened ANC voters free houses and free BMW’s and in that manner seize the nation’s tax revenue and live like Mugabe.

The ANC is certainly not concerned about the poor, so why should we worry?
