President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced special measures to fight corruption during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Addressing the nation on Thursday evening, Ramaphosa said he is concerned about COVID-19 funds being stolen or misused, and food parcels being diverted from needy households.

He said increasingly South Africans are hearing allegations about:
  • Fraudulent UIF claims
  • Overpricing of goods and services
  • Violation of emergency procurement regulations
  • Collusion between officials and service providers
  • Abuse of food parcel distribution
  • The creation of fake non-profit organisations to access relief funding.

Unfortunately, the president and the ANC's words are as meaningless as their inaction.

Given that ANC is corrupt to the core across all levels of the organisation, this implies they're about to arrest and charge the entire party?

How utterly brain-dead do you have to be to buy this shiat?

Money and resources are being stolen, lets use more money and resources to make sure money and resources aren't stolen.

Sound like he's only targeting Covid 19 corruption, so everything else is fair game.
