The political eradication of the ANC might be a start.
Aren't we lucky we live in a democracy? It's open season all year long to politically eradicate the ANC, if only the opposition were not so incompetent.

Imagine thinking it's just due to the opposition being incompetent.

And then the start of the EFF’s reign....
Do you think for one second people will vote DA?

The ANC has the advantage of being the liberation party, thanks to the NP and its retarded apartheid, now what the opposition parties don't realise is that they have to work twice as hard to overcome this, the DA was on the right path before they started their self destruction.

The EFF has shown signs that it has reached the ceiling with its stagnation in votes, they have done nothing to change their cause so they will remain on their 10% or drop, with the DA seemingly not having a clue on how to get out of the mess they created guess who is going to be the biggest beneficiary?

It totally is, imagine thinking that there is some other hidden conspiracy why a party that has a Helen Zille constantly rambling on about the advantages of colonialism is struggling to get votes from the majority that was oppressed by colonialism.

When you are so incompetent that you are not even able to recognize that you are and are looking all over the place for non existent reasons why you are not getting votes.

I can only but laugh at anyone who thinks any initiative to stop corruption will be successful. It is simply the way things are done in every sphere of government from the ground up.

I recently engaged with a company who legitimately won a minor tender some 10'ish years ago and started the work required. In year 3 there was a new deployment to the respective sector and the first thing they did was to "evaluate" all contracts.

Shortly afterwards the company was informed they needed to "up" their BEE credentials and there was a specific company that needed to be given a 20% equity stake for them to comply. The adsurdity was that the company was already 100% black owned! Be that as it may the suggestion was refused and the shortly afterwards the legitimacy of the contract was disputed.

Jump ahead 5 years of legal battles with no work being done in terms of the contract and the company won their case with the high court declaring the contract valid and awarding costs of the entire process to the company.

The situation hasn't changed though. There are new deployees from government side but the story remains the same but now, they accept the validity of the contract, they are simply making it impossible for the work to be done by delaying the administrative part of the process. Indirectly word was sent to the company that if they want this burden to go away they simply need to issue a 20% shareholding to a specific company.

Now the company is heading back to court again in an attempt to get an order to force government to do their admin so that they can carry on and do their work.

It's pure extortion and sanctioned by those in power who provide cover and protection to the implementors.

He's all talk and no action. He's been saying he's going to crack down on corruption since he took over. So far that stupid Zondo Commission has done bubkis in bringing anyone to book over State Capture. And all the while the currect government still buys fancy cars and have their houses redone and tenders go all sideways. Nothing will ever change.
