Urgent action lacking in SA
THE problem with the body politic of South Africa is that there are no consequences for all those found guilty or allegedly involved in wrongdoing or acts of corruption.
The line always is condemnation or with commissions of inquiry, some of which take years and enormous resources from the state with little action, if any, on making recommendations and finding remedies.
Lots of exposés have been laid bare, from State of Capture, Betrayal of the Promise, the Gupta e-mails and now the diagnostic report by the ANC secretary-general tabled at the ANC policy conference.
We now all know how our state, including its entities, were captured and plundered by the greedy few at the expense of the majority.
My gripe with the current leadership is the failure to act. Our security agencies from the Hawks to the NDPP (National Director of Public Prosecutions) are deafening with their silence and lack of action; less said about their capacity to protect their own assets and buildings against the thieves.
As South Africans we hold our bated breath for action from all those in positions of authority and entrusted with the responsibility of protecting the country. Notwithstanding the call for the commission of inquiry, what we require urgently is action against all those who are implicated. ANC Gauteng caucus, in his personal capacity
