The rich should not have the last word running our land

2016-05-19 06:00

Rich people can command greater attention from influential policy-makers by contributing financially to political leaders.

This is how financial resources translate into political power. The Gupta debacle drives home how seriously the political process can be manipulated by money. Have we become so used to the manipulation of the political process by those with money that we no longer expect anything to change?

Something has clearly gone wrong in our country.
