The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
You have to wonder where it will all end. The Arms Deal. A $10m FIFA World Cup bribe. Nkandla. The $100bn nuclear fleet project. And now confirmation from the US Securities & Exchange Commission of something long whispered but until now never proven: Japanese company Hitachi paid bribes to the ruling ANC – and presumably those who “facilitated” its landing of the lucrative Medupi Power Station contract. The timing is opportune, encouraging those who might be wavering to join tomorrow’s Anti-Corruption March to the Union Buildings. A fish rots from the head. And it’s smelling really bad right now in the beloved country. – Alec Hogg
