Simple question really. If you were offered $1 million a year by a smooth talking sales rep to consult for a company, would you say no?

Consider this snippet for a moment:
The M&G has previously reported allegations that late defence minister Joe Modise's special adviser, Fana Hlongwane, received huge payments from BAE. This emerged from a 2007 SFO request to South Africa for legal assistance, which the M&G has seen.

It stated: "Documents disclosed by BAE have revealed that Hlongwane entered into a general consultancy agreement with BAE in 2002 on a retainer of £1-million [R14-million] per annum. In 2005 there was an agreement to pay $8-million [R55-million] as a settlement figure to Hlongwane in relation to work done on the Gripen project." Hlongwane has not explained why he should have been rewarded by BAE.
