State Capture Inquiry

'I am suggesting a healthy but strong dose of mistrust'

READ: 'ANC should assist in state capture inquiry and those implicated should testify'

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, political analyst at the Department of Political Sciences at Unisa, Mpumelelo Mkhabela says there are lessons that can be learnt from the inquiry and one of them is to mistrust politicians as they can be bought.

I am suggesting a healthy but strong dose of mistrust and what that would do is that citizens will always be vigilant beyond going to the ballot box and choose the political party that they like.

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, From the Department of Political Sciences at Unisa

They will be vigilant after the elections and they will always watch out for what the people that they have elected are doing or not doing.
