The sheer temer­ity of cor­rup­tion

The Africa Report - - BRIEFING -

Brazil, hav­ing lost one pres­i­dent to im­peach­ment, couldn’t lose an­other so soon, could it? Hav­ing un­seated Dilma Rouss­eff, cur­rent pres­i­dent Michel Te­mer now finds his perch un­steady. First, record­ings which ap­pear to show him turn­ing a blind eye to mas­sive cor­rup­tion were re­leased to the Supreme Court in June by two brothers in the meat-pack­ing busi­ness. Now the po­lice claim to have fresh tapes. While Te­mer has fired the jus­tice min­is­ter, he may find it in­creas­ingly hard to ig­nore the huge street protests push­ing for his de­par­ture.
