    Joel Netshitenzhe is an ANC cadre and this laughable bilge he is spewing is just election propaganda, and about as credible as Joe Biden’s “commitment” to guarding the US border.

  • Debbie Annas says:

      Giving back stolen money is no deterrent . A 25 year jail sentence without parole will send a big message to looters on all sides of the transaction . The companies that pay the bribes , the fixers and middle men that facilitate bribe payment . The lawyers who receive bribe money into trust accounts . The government ministers that authorize the bribe ,the board members of the SOE’s that sign off on the bribe the BBBEE fronts that sanitize the process and get the contract but do no work and then all the recipients of ill gotten gains. Just pick 3 well known multi billion contracts , follow the money and put all in jail for 25 years . Oh I forgot – this is what the criminal justice system is supposed to do .

    In South Africa : actions don’t have consequences provided you are a Comrade.
