Save SA from greed, thieves
After so many years we spent fighting the evil of apartheid, with some of compatriots spending decades in exile, it is disheartening that so much has been lost through corruption by our government officials.
Could they be asked to please pay back all that they stole from the state. There were funds stolen through the army settlements; Nkandla expenditure for a private home for one who already had an official home; money lost through misappropriation and mismanagement at Prasa resulting in the loss of not less than some R620m.
More millions lost through mismanagement of tenders, false qualifications and corruption in metro police, home affairs and other state organs.
People who have stolen or squandered these funds are still alive, and continuing to make a comfortable living from ill-gotten wealth.
In a normally run state, they would be required to pay back all that they have stolen and owe to the state.
The last thing we need is a display of their private parts, as the home affairs minister showed his erect penis.
As we travel in foreign lands, we get people asking us about immoral behaviour of our leaders. We have become a laughing stock, while these people continue to laugh and make fun of their oppressive behaviour towards ordinary citizens, including in parliament.
We do not need this. Please stop it. Retrieve some dignity for the state and get all the thieves and wrongdoers to pay back the money.
Remove from government those who do not deserve their positions. Please let us have some dignity and integrity in this state.
