The Rot of Corruption – Part Deux

It is happy-clappy times out there. More corruption by public officials uncovered.

The scale, callousness and prevalence of corruption at every level of administration around the country is obscene.

But then, what would one expect from affirmative action policies by the ANC where being honest, ethical and selected on merit is NOT a criterion?

As long as they have the correct skin pigment, can walk upright and say their names, that’s all that matters to the ANC.

Health officials held for fraud.

Ten health department officials were arrested on Wednesday for fraud involving nearly a million rand, Eastern Cape police said.

"The health department was losing a lot of money because they failed to use up their [funds]. They [the accused] then contacted suppliers and they put forward false invoices," said police spokesperson Captain Thozama Solani.

Among the ten arrested was Pumla Elizabeth Vavi, a chief financial officer in the department.Vavi and her nine co-accused appeared in the Zwelitsha magistrate's court on Wednesday.

All were released on R 1000 bail."The suppliers made claims that they had completed jobs... and they invoiced for close to a million rand in total," she said.

The 10 were arrested in various places in and around King William's Town.

Police investigations are continuing. All ten are due back in court on August 27.

Thanks for the tip.

Nope, you won't see it in our media because they haven't the balls to tell the truth.

Remember Bullard?

Our journos are a disgrace. You won't see Aussie or UK or US journos standing back from their governments. They give them hell.

Our journos are pussies, too busy protecting their livelihoods to give a damn.

Bullard took a flyer (and nothing major either) and came off second best. The others see that and shit themselves.

Pity. It is their lives too and that of their families that is being affected by the ANC and its policies yet there they are, being led to the slaughter like meek little lambs.

It takes blogs like this and others to tell SAns what is going on in their own country.

How sorry is that? Thanks for the link. I'll post the article.
