The ANC has vowed to take a tougher stance on corruption as part of its election campaign.
The party has appointed convicted fraudster Tony Yengeni to lead the subcommittee that will deal with how to root out corruption in the state. How ironic says Eusebius. Though he quotes Jeff Hadebe explaining Yengeni in that position, as saying he served his time. 'I suppose they wanted someone with experience', jokes Eusebius.
I'm shocked to discover that the ANC is shocked to discover that it is shocked by corruption. Where have you been?— Eusebius McKaiser, show host
There are two problems with the ANC being shocked, it's utterly disingenuous of course.— Eusebius McKaiser, show host
First, it's this pretence that you can, when it's convenient to draw a distinction between party and state. So when it serves the ANC, they remember that there is a difference between being a political party and being in the state.— Eusebius McKaiser, show host
I don't take the ANC seriously on those rare occasions where they remember that there is a difference between party and state. You can't have it both ways.— Eusebius McKaiser, show host
Callers on the show lamented that they also don't take the ANC seriously about their statements of rooting out corruption.
The ANC is beyond redemption. The greed has become an inherent part of what people do.— Mike, Caller
What I find absolutely unbelievable from a country of some many people, Tony Yengeni is best they could find to go and find for the ending of corruption.— Seth, Caller
