Law enforcement agents now seem to be going after all the corrupt ones and the arms of the law are now catching up with all those who carry out unlawful activities.
In the report, it was stated that the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation have arrested more than 10 municipal officials for alleged corruption related to tender irregularities at the Mogalakwena Municipality in Mokopane. The suspects include a former mayor who is a member of the ANC Regional Executive Committee (REC) in the Waterberg region.
Business people have not been spared as they are said to be the ones who got the tenders.
This is however the same council where Gwede Mantashe was the ANC chairperson and Nox Seabi was ANC Limpopo secretary . The duo are said to have defended the very same suspects when the allegations began surfacing.
Members of the public sound pleased with the latest arrest of corrupt public office bearers. They however wish if investigations could be taken back to pre 1994.
Many are of the belief that a lot of folks benefited from corruption during apartheid. There is absolutely no reason why there is no investigation being conducted from that time.
Some of the beneficiaries of corruption during that time are enjoying the ill-gotten wealth in South Africa. Corruption did not only start with the current black leadership as there are several allegations of mass corruption which was conducted in this country which has never been looked into.
