Maybe it wasn’t a coincidence that the word "anti" was misspelled "atni" twice in the subject and heading of Justice Minister Jeff Radebe’s speech on international anti-corruption day on Friday.

The lack of attention to spelling is consistent with the Jacob Zuma administration’s lack of attention to ensure South Africa fights the scourge of corruption that has been creeping into our body politic and societal DNA since Zuma took power in 2009.

Radebe’s speech about South Africa’s efforts to fight corruption under Zuma leaves me cold.
