South Africa: The Day of Reckoning Has Begun - Let the Renewal Commence


The day of reckoning has indeed begun, and the three-pronged approach by Cyril Ramaphosa must certainly be supported.

Cyril Ramaphosa's three-pronged approach comprises:

A Political Path (remove the rot in the Executive/Cabinet including Zuma and ready the ANC for 2019 elections);

A Legal Path (root out all corruption and State Capture culprits and restore confidence in our legal institutions), and finally,

A Spring Cleaning Path (clean the ANC house and Constitution).

Be afraid, be very afraid; it is most satisfying to see that, slowly but surely, those responsible for mass looting, State Capture, and dubiously enriching daughters, sons, wives or partners will all face the music in the coming months. Our very own "Operation Carwash", like in Brazil. Perhaps now is the time, President Cyril, to introduce an amnesty period to all these culprits; after all, inasmuch as we all want to see justice prevail, it's by and large the money we taxpayers want to see being returned to State coffers.

"Come forward now and maybe you will avoid jail time" must be the motto henceforth.

Continue thinking you are smarter than the rest and you will forfeit any bargaining you think you might have and you will be told...
