Corruption perpetuates in SA
IF I were the Minister of Public Enterprises I would appoint Dikgang Moseneke with Terence Nombembe at the helm of Eskom.
In the same way, deploy father Smangaliso Mkhatshwa to lead SAA with Sizwe Nxasana as the captain. The truth is that the shenanigans besetting state-owned entities border on corporate governance and accountability deviations.
Rationally, a deployment of capable cadres with requisite skills is an ideal strategy for the ruling party to take charge of the state in order to meaningfully transform society.
This is bolstered by the theory that deployees would process government mandates in the performance of their duties to deliver on the objectives set out in the party election manifesto. The challenge arises when those entrusted to realise this goal get embroiled in maladministration of a corrupt nature.
Painfully, the effects are gravely felt by the poor, the unemployed and the needy, particularly the sickly and the homeless. The reality is that corruption perpetuates instability in the country.
And the rot is right at the top, hence corruption has occupied space in society. Our way of life has been replaced by corrupt conduct, we bribe to get ahead of others, we bribe to get things done our way and we bribe to get away with wrongdoing.
