Corruption in South Africa: Outrageous
I watched the video clip by Tania Page and my jaw dropped. Marabastad Home Affairs Office collects a R100 bribe for anyone wanting to join a queue. That's at the low end. At the high end the ruling party has an "Investment Company" that gets involved (secretly) in government tenders, such as the building of power stations. Not only was this a conflict of interests, but it was disastrous for the country: the power stations are several years late, leading to load shedding and job losses. No one in the ANC has apologized for the delays, or taken responsibility for the fiasco. Why should they? They're corrupt and they are proud of it.
