READING the astonishing news that an exit package of R2 billion is being negotiated with President Jacob Zuma so he can leave office adds more weight, once more, to what we have seen over the years that the more corrupt you are, the bigger the golden handshake.
I wonder how many honest public servants have been rewarded and given the huge amounts that the inner circle of the president’s looters have, or the promotions to another lucrative post when it was becoming too hot in their current position.
It brings to mind the wise words of a legend of over 2 500 years ago, namely Aesop the famous Greek fable author, who said “that we hang petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office”. Bryanston
Are honest public servants being rewarded?
