Will South Africa ever recover from the corruption committed by corrupt ministers?
Have you ever wondered where the government gets the money for flashy cars and how they can afford their luxurious lifestyle? It's also quite coincidental that ministers such as Ace Magashule and Zweli Mkhize looted money from contracts they received.
How Jacob Zuma desired power and control over South Africa, and how THE GUPTA BROTHERS HIJACKED SOUTH AFRICA WITH BRIBES INSTEAD OF BULLETS.
According to the news, Jacob Zuma and the Gupta brothers—Rajesh, Ajay, and Atul—plunder up to $7 billion from South Africa, which is more than South Africa billionaires business tycoon Patrice motsepe, who has a net worth of $3 billion. What the Guptas accomplished in South Africa has been widely publicized.
The three Gupta brothers—Ajay, Atul, and Rajesh—had purchased the Optimum Coal Mine in December 2015, adding it to the tentacular empire they were constructing across South Africa, which included holdings in uranium deposits, media outlets, computer companies, and arms suppliers.
Arriving soon after apartheid's demise, the Guptas demonstrated that it was possible to turn the best of Mandela's intentions—that nonwhites should be given a chance to prosper—against the country by turning them against it. According to Ronnie Kasrils, a former African National Congress minister and Mandela comrade, the Guptas "would have heard that these A.N.C. guys are suckers."
“They are friendly, open, and without prejudice.” Many A.N.C. members were hungry for self-enrichment after years of enduring corrupt and ruthless white rule, believing it was their “time to eat,” as one anti-apartheid activist put it. They found the ideal enablers of their greed in the Guptas.
Jacob Zuma also worked with Schabir Shaik, a South African professional from Berea, Durban, who rose to prominence as a result of his close association with former South African President Jacob Zuma while he was Deputy President. Zuma was found guilty of corruption and fraud on June 2, 2005, which resulted in his dismissal by then-President Thabo Mbeki.
Shaik was charged with fraud and corruption in the Durban High Court on October 11, 2004. Shaik admitted during the trial that he lied about his qualifications and business achievements.
Also under investigation are ministers such as Zweli Mkhize. According to the news, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has placed Health Minister Zweli Mkhize on special leave following allegations that his department irregularly awarded COVID-19-related contracts to a communications company controlled by his former associates.
It was said to be the latest in a string of corruption allegations linked to coronavirus-related tenders that sparked public outrage. Ramaphosa has promised that corruption will be dealt with harshly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mkhize told the press that he had approached the president about taking a special leave while an investigation into the contracts awarded to communications firm Digital Vibes was being conducted. Previously, he denied any wrongdoing.
In addition, the gangster state apprehended Ace Magashule, the secretary general of the ANC and a close friend of Jacob Zuma, and the Gupta brothers, who appeared in court in connection with the Free State Asbestos housing project.
Following his first appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrates' Court today, he was later released on R200,000 bail. He is accused of multiple counts of corruption, fraud, theft, and money laundering in connection with his alleged involvement in the R255-million Free State asbestos audit contract.
Former President Jacob Zuma, who is serving a 15-month sentence in Estcourt prison for contempt of court, was also transferred to a hospital outside the prison for observation on August 6, just days before the start of a corruption trial that he has so far avoided.
According to the source, Mr Zuma underwent a surgical procedure on Saturday, 14 August 2021, with other procedures scheduled in the coming days.
Will Former President Jacob Zuma, as well as other corrupt politicians, will be sentenced to life in prison??
