Hackers caught after R400 million lost
A mere R400 million has gone missing from state coffers as a result of computer hacking of government departments. That's over US$ 40 million for foreign readers. Given the sorry state of some of the departments I have visited, I'm not in the least bit surprised. How many ARV's could that have bought, or homeless children could it have fed?
