Saying that there is corruption in South Africa no longer invoke any emotion or requires any response. Since the dawn of our young democracy corruption has been growing exponentially.
A few months ago a stadium was unveiled that shocked the entire country. The stadium was said to have cost more than a couple of millions but clearly its value did not match the price tag.
A community in Dibeng Ga-Matlala outside Polokwane in Limpopo were left fuming after a shoddy work done by the contractor on their road. The road was completed a month ago but it already has extensive damage.
This type of poor and shoddy work is becoming a common sight in many municipalities. Businesses without experience or expertise are given huge contracts by corrupt officials.
The community in Dibeng is calling for the contractor to come back and fix the mess they have made on their road. Last year the community embarked on a massive protest demanding a new building for the school.
