The #GuptaLeaks reveal that Guptas are implementing a version of the hundred percent bribe model in South Africa to turn our country into a site of slums and misery. They set up a system that ensured that foreign companies were made to pay bribes to secure business with state-owned companies.
South African officials who took part in the looting schemes have had their spines thoroughly massaged – literally and otherwise – in Dubai so as to make them sufficiently wobbly.
As is the case with bribery, what is so foolish about the whole thing is that the scheme is financed by the South African state. Yet, South African officials are so dumb to believe that the Guptas are wealthy. Yes, they are wealthy, because we gave them a country to milk, writes Mpumelelo Mkhabela.
