Who want's to be a millionaire?

09 November 2012, 19:23

So who want's to be a millionaire? Judging on the goings on preceding the ANC elective conference soon to be held at Mangaung it seems that everyone wants this honor.

What is happening to our country? It appears that the political leadership race is definitely not about a desire to help the starving masses, but rather about gaining positions of power and through this the opportunity to amass enormous wealth.

A good friend of mine shared the following experience with me. Over the past two years, through hard work and some clever marketing, my friend has successfully developed a growing manufacturing business in the rural area surrounding Durban. Recently he was surprised to see, not one, but three helicopters circling his business. A few days later two of the local politicians paid him a visit with an interesting offer. In return for a substantial cash payment, my friend was to sign a letter saying that his project was funded by government and initiated by the said politicians. The politicians wanted him to sign that he had been a recipient of money from the politicians that had been given to him to fund the project.

Something strange I think. It appears that these two politicians had a problem that they needed to solve. Firstly I think they needed a reason to account for the funding money that they had already stolen. Secondly I think they needed a project that they could claim as their own doing, so as to show their government bosses that they had been working hard.

So why should this be strange? After all the whole government is doing exactly the same thing. Perhaps this story helps us to understand why there is so much infighting within the current government. They all want to be millionaires.
