Such is the extent of the collapse of ethics among the governing elites, that they steal from the dead.

But they want us to believe that Mandela is their hero. Really?

For as long as the thugs are not in jail, the posthumous dishonour of Mandela continues. It doesn't matter what they say rhetorically in struggle song or wherever.

Similarly, if the equality before the law clause doesn't apply to those who broke the law in front of the whole nation at Mlangeni's funeral – not that you should hold your breath, dear reader – it means the dishonour against him is continuing.

The collapse of ethics and the entrenchment of impunity among ruling elites have huge implications for the future of our country.

The dishonour of people of high stature, like Mandela and Mlangeni, and the general theft of public resources without consequences are having a corrosive effect on society in general.

Ordinary citizens are no doubt asking themselves undesirable questions.

If the lawmakers and enforcers can break the rules, why can't I?

Two companies owned by the sons of former Free State premier and current ANC secretary-general, Ace Magashule, have clinched Covid-19 contracts with a combined value of R2.7-million. This, after the Free State’s treasury, the MEC of which is alleged to be close to Magashule, centralised the province’s procurement for Covid-19-related goods and services.

Politicians. Lawyers. Property Agents. Car Salesmen.


They have the same degree of ethics.

Despite the ANC IC admitting there is a problem, and despite the recommendations made to rectify issues, the NEC is still able to veto bad behaviour ......................sad.
haha... NEC will never throw the law at corrupt officials, because they are ALL corrupt. Only to get rid of them is voting them out.. and ANC has the white boogeyman card to play and scare their voters.

Hawks probe Nkomazi municipal manager who appointed himself to oversee R27m Covid-19 budget
The Hawks have launched an investigation into the Covid-19 coronavirus budget irregularities at the Nkomazi Local Municipality in Mpumalanga where a manager appointed himself to be the sole administrator of the R27.3 million budget.
Hawks investigators conducted a search and seizure operation at the municipality’s offices in Malalane on Thursday.


Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi, the investigative unit’s spokesperson, said the Hawks were accompanied by members from the Digital Forensic Laboratory and the local police’s Criminal Record Centre.

“The operation follows investigations in relation to the alleged Covid-19 procurement fraud. The appointment of contractors and service providers was inconsistent with the requisite procurement regulations. The monetary value involved is about R27 million,” Mulaudzi said.


No arrests have been made yet, he added.
