True, but then the ANC was strong. Today not so much anymore.
Courts are again “open for business” in that they are not “captured” as much anymore.
The Bell Pottinger fiasco, the auditing firms that got caught out, the Banks, the companies in and around Medupe and Kusile, stuff with international consequences. Big Business is doing it better now. And they keep SARS happy so bugger the ANC.
However, it is a temporary situation, the Mafias. Coming to mind are the Construction Mafia etc.
Why temporary? People are seriously gatvol, today Mafias “rule” big business until the police, and it is inevitable, become less “captured”. The courts are ready for the cases. Gnl Hat is having a harder and harder time explaining the lack of results. And he is old, the moment ANC loses the elections, he is gone. As are the Mantashe and Gordhan things.
What gave me that hope was when CoCT impounded taxis using a National Law that was on the books. House of Cards comes to my mind, coming down card for card. No-one can hold the majority to “ransome” indefinitely.
Coupled with the patient, although in no rush, the long-reaching arms of the law.
Patience, there is an election coming to a booth near you.
EV’s, the opportunities in SA, the raw materials right here on the continent, there are opportunities and the new generation is here, they are ready for jobs and business. If the 4.7mil (?) new voter registrations are any indication, we are in for an interesting election.
