    Is there evidence of corruption in the etoll project? I can believe that any work carried out by public works is sure to involve a lot of corruption but the others I'm no sure. Looks like we're making wild allegations.

    No tender entry? Where most of the money is wasted unless i missed it, so insult me now DJ and get it over with .

    Tender process is the most corrupt, i know i do work for people who do work for government and i know they take our quotes triple them and get the the jobs. It's a free market though and the government can accept any quote they like but it's corrupt. Unless that isn't corrupt but i think it is.

    You know someone's palm has been greased just in case you get confused dj.

    You and I had this debate already in the numerous other e-toll threads and I made my case for it based on research I had conducted and evidence I posted. You're welcome to go back and address the points all over once again if you like?

    Post examples of tender fraud and corruption. That's the point of this thread - not all tenders are corrupt, but those that are should be listed as such in this thread...

    Not corruption in the project, just how I disagreed with your conjecture of how the project might impact the country's sovereign debt ratings.

    What do you define as government corruption? We all know what corruption is…

    But would government benefits like having expensive vehicles, housing or other expenses (like holidays) etc. covered by tax payer’s money classify as government corruption? In my opinion the government is utilising tax payer’s money to buy and accumulate personal assets for their own benefit, where these funds could have gone for development of the people in this country.
