It’s a staggering amount of money, despite it not all falling under government. In 2015, the Internal Institute of Auditors calculated that South Africa had lost around R700 billion to corruption since 1994. Off the back of this Ed Herbst winds back the clock, and looks at how internal government criminal activity was dealt with by the National Party and now the ANC. The examples pre-1994 are numerous but when looking at post 1994 convictions, Herbst can only find two. And if one’s leadership is soft on corruption, don’t expect things to be any better on the ground. Do as you want others to do. – Stuart Lowman
