Gov­ern­ment of cronies, crooks

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS - JM Bou­vier

WHEN I see, read and hear tripe, I call it tripe.

There is no other way to de­scribe the scur­rilous al­le­ga­tions that our pub­lic pro­tec­tor, Busi Mkhwe­bane, throws around, pulling rab­bits out of her hat to jus­tify her­self, with al­le­ga­tions of mis­con­duct and throw­ing mud at the Re­serve Bank from an al­most 30-year-old case.

Then, over­reach­ing her man­date, she re­quests changes to the con­sti­tu­tion, so the cen­tral bank must change its fo­cus from main­tain­ing cur­rency and price sta­bil­ity to one of pro­mot­ing eco­nomic growth. Here is an­other down­grade com­ing our way soon.

The more she was talk­ing, the more she ex­posed her­self as in­com­pe­tent and put there for one rea­son – to try and in­ca­pac­i­tate the Re­serve Bank so the plun­der­ing can con­tinue un­abated.

We all know why No 1 put her and every other ap­pointee in key po­si­tions… al­though he made two mis­takes in his appointments of two unique in­di­vid­u­als (Thuli Madon­sela and Mo­go­eng Mo­go­eng).

In­stead of fol­low­ing what her pre­de­ces­sor left on her desk about state capture, and have No 1 be­hind bars by now, or chas­ing the bil­lions mis­ap­pro­pri­ated every year ac­cord­ing to the au­di­tor­gen­eral, she has be­come a grave dig­ger to un­earth what is dead long ago.

There are not any com­pe­tent peo­ple in this gov­ern­ment, only un­qual­i­fied cronies and crooks. Bryanston
