Is the government doing enough to tackle corruption?
Charity begins at home. The minister in the presidency pays lip service in the fight against corruption – the battle will not be won. Jeff Radebe (the lame duck in the presidency), is the last to talk about the fight against corruption because it’s happening right under his nose, yet he is pointing in the wrong direction and misleading people. Radebe fumbled and changed his story about the Air Force Base Waterkloof landing of the Guptas. Who can trust him and his cohorts in higher places when they talk of “corruption”? The people will fight it, and we will win.
SM Raseobi Free State
Not much is done. People are reporting it, but there is no evidence of investigations and disciplinary action. “Scratch my back, then I will scratch yours” is the rule of the day.
A big no. They are the ones who are the most corrupt. Government is ineffective because officials are protecting one another and making this country worse.

Corruption is crime. The president of South Africa both exemplifies and condones it in his administration. Why? Because for him and his sycophants, crime pays.
Zweli Ndlazi Gauteng
No. It’s like asking the devil to stop taking people to hell, or asking the devil to investigate himself.
Maria Free State
No, they are not effective. The ANC, which happens to be the government, is of the opinion that corruption is its institutional right. The best strategy is a second revolution to remove the ANC from power.
Mahlangu Free State
Soon South Africa will be the worst country to live in. The world will name us the number one corruption state. Corruption erases all the good things this beautiful country has worked hard to achieve.
Priscilla Maboa Gauteng
Corruption must be rooted out from the top. People must stop preaching what they don’t practice. The very same people who speak about anti-corruption are the ones who promote it. Our institutions are rotten because of this cancer of corruption.
Dumisani Dibanto KwaZulu-Natal
Corruption in this country has gone beyond anyone’s imagination. Whoever still believes this ANC-led government is seriously tackling corruption is lost in Disneyland.
Richard Mabuza Mpumalanga
We are being led by praise singers – an incompetent group of individuals representing their own interests and families. Under this leadership there are no feedback meetings to the membership. Most of those in leadership positions do not understand corporative governance and effective leadership.
I think MK has passed its sell-by date. We appreciate the work of MK members such as Solomon Mahlangu and his coterie of gallant boys and girls under Chris Hani and Joe Slovo. But the kitchen cook is diluting their struggles by making it a rented, pay-as-you-go MK.

Kebby Maphatsoe doesn’t have a clue of what is to be done for veterans in the short term, medium term or long term. He is failing our veterans. He is serving no one’s interests but his own and those of his factional masters.
There is no way Maphatsoe can unite the veterans. He belongs to a faction himself.
Marcus Mooka Limpopo
The veterans will never be united under Maphatsoe, as he appears to be on many slates. A leader must not take sides, he must lead and show his followers direction. He must ensure the organisation discusses matters, not decide on its behalf. The other problem is a lack of listening and just talking without thinking in order to satisfy his masters.
No chance of union under Kebby. He is factional and leaders should be independent and support the movement, not individuals. They should have protected both the people marching to Luthuli House and Luthuli House itself, because those people are members of the ANC. They lack principles.
