State officials working with crime syndicates to steal millions - Report

Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille has ordered a complete overhaul of the government's shambolic property management system after learning that government officials are manipulating it to steal millions of rand.

These officials are reportedly working with crime syndicates to make money off of government properties, including the following examples uncovered by the Sunday Times:

  • A former Johannesburg office clerk rented out seven state-owned properties and pocketed the R70,000 rental.
  • An Eastern Cape employee accepted two down payments of R20,000 for state-owned houses in King William's Town.
  • A KwaZulu-Natal official sold state land in the upper-class suburb of Glenashley, Durban.

And they want us to believe the answer to SA's woes is land redistribution? To who? For what purpose? They can't even manage what's in front of them now.

De Lille said:
"The auditor-general has raised issues about this register, especially around the correct classification of the assets.”
So this was previously known and highlighted and the ruling cANCer party did nothing to fix it, colour me surprised.

Why is the Zondo Commission taking so long, and why is all criminal/corruption prosecutions on hold until the commission wraps up, ........?

Cyril will form an expert panel to analyse the findings of the Zondo commission.

So are they in jail yet or will it just go away
