State Capture on a scale not seen since the days of Rhodes’ Cape Colony and Kruger’s Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek.

So Malema was the journalist writing this article?

This claim requires some supporting evidence and/or context in order to match into today's understanding.
If we want to judge the past by today's standards, Shaka is a war criminal.

Comrade Cyril owes his huge wealth to BEE and I cannot imagine him giving up anything.
BEE legislation is racist from the word go. No matter who says what. South Africans in general and black South Africans in particular, will pay for it dearly. 25y after "liberation" most people see it for what it is. In another 25y everyone will look back and say WTF and OMG #LiveWithIt

So is Affirmative Action. Another underlying cause of state capture and many other things going wrong too, both in private and public sectors.

In my opinion, the lack of good ethics and values are a prime enabler for corruption and abuse of power.

Amazing that these were the warnings when BEE was first mooted in the 90's and here we are 20 yrs later in exactly the situation that many warned about. Of course, at the time, those who warned about it were slated as racists.
