Fa­tal cor­rup­tion fall-out

Weekend Witness - - Opinion -

AL­LE­GA­TIONS of cor­rup­tion and bribery have been made about the Mkon­deni driver li­cens­ing cen­tre ( Week­end Wit­ness, Au­gust 10).

One asks who should be charged? Cer­tainly the cor­rupt Road Traf­fic In­spec­torate of­fi­cial and the driv­ing school.

But what about the in­di­vid­ual who is tak­ing the driv­ing test and pre­pared to pay a bribe? He or she should also be held ac­count­able for cor­rup­tion. It sug­gests that this in­di­vid­ual is not con­fi­dent about his or her driv­ing abil­ity.

As a para­medic, I wit­ness, on a daily ba­sis, peo­ple who are in­ex­pe­ri­enced be­hind the wheel, who have caused ac­ci­dents where in­no­cent oth­ers are in­jured, of­ten fa­tally.
