Eusebius McKaiser to Jessie Duarte: Wena, take corruption seriously, Aunty!

The Sunday Times is reporting that the ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte feels that Tony Yengeni was wrongfully convicted of fraud in 2003.

Duarte is quoted saying 'The conviction of Comrade Tony Yengeni worries many in the ANC. What are we saying? If you negotiate a vehicle in this country you dare not negotiate a discount because that’s corruption?'

Wena, you must take corruption seriously, take corruption seriously aunty!

The judiciary actually thought he got off lightly. Not as Jessie Duarte would have us believe that he was treated harshly.

Now if a politician admits in law that I intended to defraud one of the arms of the state, then how on earth can Jessie Duarte say is wasn't serious that he was convicted?

And this is the ANC that many of you vote for.
