Acting on corruption

I think it was good to hear, during the State of the Nation Address by President Cyril Ramaphosa, that the private sector will help the government investigate cases emanating from the State Capture Inquiry.  President Ramaphosa said there might well be special court rolls which would deal with rampant corruption and that whistle blowers would be more protected in future. 

He said it was now obvious that state capture did take place whereby, “… public institutions and state-owned enterprises were infiltrated by a criminal network intent on looting public money for private gain.”  I think it is a good idea to have the private sector assisting with the investigation and prosecution of the crimes, because I don’t think the Government has the capacity to prosecute these cases properly and one wonders as to how many people there are in Government that are loyal to those involved in the state capture.  Obviously, those sort of concerns must have been in the back of the President’s mind when he took this unusual decision to involve the private sector.

The Phalaphala saga is running across his face to an extend that the opposing section is calling him Ankole. This is a huge problem for him as well.

Its quiet funny to read that the president is speaking about the corruption in the country but he is one of the biggest players in the corruption game as he never reported money being stolen from farm. What a Joke

I just hope that all who are implicated in state captured are dealt with the same way regardless of their status.

It is funny how the president loves to talk about corruption and how we need to deal with it but forgetting that his own party is corrupt and more. It is easy for him to come to the people and buy their votes with food parcels and giving them R100 so that they can vote for them, isn't that corruption? At the same time they promise people that they will build them houses and fix the roads but still nothing. The will always be corruption no what he says, he and the ANC party will always be corrupt

It may be a good idea for the government to have some assistance when prosecuting and investigating crimes, etc.

Seeing is believing when it comes to this President. Personally I think he is all bark and no bite so we will wait patiently to see what happens. I just think it is a marketing ploy to get a second term.

There is so many different opinions with regards to this. It is all over the news. I think that everyone is tired of it all. What intrigues me at the moment is John Steenhuisen's no confidence vote for the President's Cabinet.
