Has South Africa鈥檚 ruling party betrayed Mandela鈥檚 legacy? Full episode: youtu.be/BGq6dSO4Yx4
In reply to @AJHeadtoHead
Well, they made it clear in this interview that ANC itself is the major mechanism of corruption in the country
Equal parts comedy, shock, horror and embarrassment

The lack of accountability in this interview from #BalekaMbete 馃う馃徑鈥嶁檪锔
Man, this was terrible to watch. If Baleka Mbete represents the kind of leadership SA has then it is no brianer that the country is experiencing crass corruption and high level criminality.

"Let's Label it as it is." Corruption happens everywhere.

And to add to Xolani Xala鈥檚 point reg house of commons; when billionaires/millionaires make 鈥榙onations鈥 to politicians lets call what they really are - they鈥檙e bribes so they can get what they want aka corruption. What you call donations I call bribery and therefore corruption.

The country has been clearly placed after the party - a constitutional failure! We need to fix this through Democratic processes and accountability most importantly

scandal vs corruption 馃槀馃ぃ馃槀
Corruption doesn't only exists in Africa.
Pay attention, Congress.
Start calling out the corruption in Congress.
Mitch McConnell.
Lindsey Graham.
And, yes...some Democrats.
Let's say it as it is, corruption is what it is anywhere. And yes, Nigeria is also a corrupt Nation, but who said it will never grow bigger and better?
Some useful commentary here on the interview of the week
I have developed arthritis from cringing to this interview. It should come with a health warning.

Aunt Baleka, it was awks. You couldn鈥檛 undo it. Or file an urgent interdict to stop the airing of the interview. Ask Baba perhaps? No?
Stop deflecting. This is classic black men speak where they say 鈥濿hite men have BEEN oppressing so we want to do it as well.鈥
At least Xolani Saved Baleka Mbethe on that question!
