    Corruption is not a 'Victimless Crime' as the money spent on the purchase of the items along with the % that is paid out as a bribe is paid by the government from the fiscus which would under usual circumstances be spent providing services and in particular uplifting the poor.

    A good example is the R250million spent on Nkandla that would have built 5000 @ R50,000 ea RDP houses that would have put a decent roof over the heads of +- 30,000 shack dwellers?

    By the way my latest political observation is that "The same people that mindlessly vote for the cANCer are the same people who believe the penis enlargement posters!"
