Busi­ness Day, Ed­i­to­rial

Business Daily (Kenya) - - IDEAS & DEBATE -

It might be tempt­ing to mock Enoch Godong­wana’s be­lated ad­mis­sion that the ANC’S mal­ad­min­is­tra­tion un­der Ja­cob Zuma’s lead­er­ship was largely to blame for the coun­try’s eco­nomic woes. Af­ter all, Godong­wana is the head of eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion for the same ANC that kept Zuma in power, and blocked at­tempts by the op­po­si­tion to force him out. The var­i­ous mo­tions of no con idence had no way of pass­ing with­out the support of ANC MPS. And they never came to the party. This meant that de­spite grow­ing ev­i­dence that state cap­ture was not a ig­ment of jour­nal­ists’ imag­i­na­tions, and that at­tempts to take over and un­der­mine the na­tional trea­sury were afoot, Zuma sur­vived three such mo­tions in par­lia­ment — all the while cheered on by ANC back­benchers.
