Opinion: ANC administration all about eating as much as you can while you can

Reports have emerged that government has spent R42 million on the procurement of luxury vehicles for ministers and their deputies between 2014 and 2017.

Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor has called on government to start implementing lifestyle audits to deal with corrupt public servants and the perception that all political leaders are corrupt.

702 Breakfast host, Xolani Gwala, says it doesn't look like the African National Congress-led (ANC) administration will implement the programme.

She is lone voice in the wilderness. This administration is not about that, it is about eating as much as you can while you can.

It's a very good call by the minister of science and technology but clearly nobody is listening, I doubt people who do not think twice about spending such money on cars would want to subject themselves to lifestyle audits.
